Convicted felons arrested for drug dealing, gun charges

WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators have arrested two convicted felons for drug dealing and gun charges after the duo were found in the area of a shooting in Walterboro Friday night.

The Walterboro Public Safety Department charged 21-year-old Christopher Rayshawn Brown and 21-year-old Raphael Jacobie Johnson with unlawful carrying of a pistol and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.

Both men were recently convicted of violent felonies.

On Friday night, police officers were in the area of Francis Street in reference to a shooting when a good Samaritan approached a police officer and said he saw someone armed with a gun in a blue Mercury Marquis leaving the Horizon gas station.

A police report states that after the suspects' vehicle ran through two stop signs, officers stopped the car on Wichman Street.

Officers say when the vehicle stopped, Brown left the vehicle and attempted to walk away. Police say an officer had to repeatedly order Brown to get back in the vehicle.

After police told the suspects why they had stopped them, Johnson gave consent to the officers to search their vehicle.

According to investigators, police found two handguns and a plastic bag containing individually wrapped pieces of a white rock substance. Both men were locked up at the Colleton County Detention Center.
