CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston police say a 32-year-old man was arrested last week after a traffic stop led to the discovery of over $13,000 worth of cocaine.

Adrian Llovoyd Grant was arrested Thursday night and charged with trafficking cocaine over 100 grams.

According to an incident report, police where on patrol in the area of King Street and Cleveland Street around 8:43 p.m. when a 2014 Ford Fiesta was spotted driving erratically through a parking lot.

While initiating a traffic stop for failing to use a turn signal, police say Grant, who was driving the vehicle, threw two plastic baggies out of the car.

The report states the bags were recovered, and the substance inside tested positive for cocaine.

Police say Grant and a passenger were then asked to exit the car and were searched. A clear plastic bag containing cocaine was found in Grant's pocket.

The report states the three bags contained a combined 132 grams of cocaine, which carries a street value of $13,200.

Police say Grant admitted all the bags contained cocaine, and the seven gram bag that was found in his pocket was recently purchased for $200.

The passenger, who admitted to knowing Grant was in possession of cocaine, was not charged.
