Police bust North Charleston man for allegedly selling drugs near school

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A North Charleston man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly trafficking cocaine and other drugs in close proximity of Mary Ford Elementary School.

While serving a bench warrant around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, officers say they heard loud music coming from inside the residence located at 2136 Cosgrove Ave. After knocking on the door, 25-year-old Anthony Bernard Clark answered the door and stepped outside, partially closing the door behind him. Officers said they could smell a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the interior of the residence.

Officers then asked Clark to retrieve his information to verify he was not the individual named on the bench warrant, which was a different name. Clark quickly reentered the residence, slammed and locked the front door on the officers, a police report states. Police then observed Clark running out of the back in an attempt to flee the residence.

Officers chased after Clark as he ran through the neighborhood, issuing several verbal commands to stop that were ignored, according to a police report. Clark attempted to climb over a fence when one of the officers tased him in the right torso area. Clark was then apprehended.

Officers then returned to the residence and from outside observed a plastic bag of marijuana that was on the living room table in plain view. A search warrant was obtained and officers entered the residence.

Police recovered 10 grams of marijuana, 24 grams of crack cocaine and 37 grams of cocaine. In addition, they seized a silver digital scale, a black digital scale, several sandwich bags, a metal grinder and several documents.

Clark was charged with trafficking cocaine, trafficking cocaine base, possession with intent to distribute cocaine within a half mile proximity of a school, possession with intent to distribute cocaine base within a half mile proximity of a school and simple possession of marijuana.
