CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police say they charged a man and a woman with trafficking meth and crack cocaine on Saturday after the man's mother called police because she was worried he was going to kill himself.

According to Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis, officers began looking for 26-year-old Terrell John Rashawn Nelson, of North Charleston, around 12 p.m. after Nelson's mother told them he was making suicidal threats.

The mother provided a description of Nelson's vehicle, a green 1996 Ford Exploer, and Francis said officers found the vehicle in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant on Spring Street. When officers approached, they saw Nelson talking on his phone outside of the SUV and a woman, 30-year-old Miranda Fine-Meyer, of Charleston, sitting inside.

Francis said police asked Fine-Meyer to get out of the Explorer because of the nature of the call and the possibility of weapons inside.

Officers said a nervous-looking Nelson and Fine-Meyer looked on as officers discovered a rock of cocaine base in plain view of the center console. Police said a subsequent search of the SUV yielded 38.8 grams of methamphetamine, 1 ecstacy pill, and 4.5 grams of marijuana to go along with 3 grams of cocaine base.

Nelson was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of marijuana 2nd offense, possession of a controlled substance schedule IV and possession of cocaine base with the intent to distribute.

Meyer was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, simple possession of marijuana 1st offense, possession of a controlled substance schedule IV, possession of cocaine base with the intent to distribute and possession of ecstasy.

Nelson and Fine-Meyer were taken to the Al Cannon Detention Center.
