JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

A Johns Island man charged with dealing drugs told investigators that he was "just trying to make money" after recently losing his job.

On Tuesday night, Charleston police officers patrolling the area of Murraywood and Partner Roads on Johns Island saw an SUV traveling into the opposite lane of traffic.

Police then stopped the vehicle and spoke to the driver, 33-year-old Brian Trevis Lee.

Officers say it appeared Lee was hiding his right hand by placing it behind the passenger seat.

When officers asked to see his hand, authorities say Lee refused. A police report states when officers told Lee to get out of the SUV, police were able to gain control of Lee's hand.

Authorities say 1.8 grams of cocaine base was found in Lee's hand.

"I just lost my job and trying to make money," Lee told police. "Ain't nothing good comes from this...I don't make that much money selling it anyway."
