BCSO: Man loses shoes, nearly his jeans during escape attempt in Goose Creek

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Authorities say a 21-year-old North Charleston man lost his shoes and nearly his jeans as he attempted to escape deputies in Goose Creek.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested Maurice DeJohn Adams with simple possession of marijuana and evading arrest.

On Nov. 19, deputies responded to a home on Pineshadow Drive in reference to past complaints of drug activity due to a group of people gathered at the front of the house.

Authorities reported that before the deputies got out of their patrol car, the people went inside the home.

A report states as one of the deputies was speaking with a neighbor, 23-year-old Cory James Iseman opened the front door of the home and left.

Deputies said they could smell marijuana coming from the home.

When deputies asked where the other people went, Iseman said that they had left.

The deputies then heard barking, looked behind the home and saw two people leaving the area.

One of the deputies got into his car and caught up to one of the suspects, later identified as Adams.

The deputy said Adams lost his shoes, and nearly his jeans during his attempt to escape arrest. BCSO officials say Adams' jeans had fallen to his ankles from jumping over multiple fences. Deputies reported finding green plant like material in his front right pocket.

A BCSO report states that Iseman's live in girlfriend, 20-year-old Caitlin Thomas, came to the home, acted disorderly in the street, yelled and frantically ran around.

Deputies say she was eventually arrested for disorderly conduct. Iseman was also arrested.

Investigators say marijuana was seen in plain view in the home, and a search warrant yielded 101 grams of cocaine, 222 grams of marijuana and a stolen pistol in the residence.
