Old warrants lead to new chargesPublished 9:32pm Wednesday, April 10, 2013
An Edward man was arrested on new charges in addition to charges from warrants stemming from controlled drug buys last year, according to a press release from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Drug Unit.
Jabari Contae Grimes, 30, of Bonnerton Road, Edward, and the woman with him at the time, Crystal Lynn Dawson, 30, of Lake Road in Beaufort, were arrested on Monday.
“We were in the Edward area, looking for him, to serve the warrants,” said a spokesman for the drug unit.
When investigators caught up with Grimes, they found cocaine and other drugs along with snorting straws in the room where Grimes was staying, he explained.
“The pills were in a napkin in his sock,” said the spokesman. “(Dawson) was in the room and the crack-smoking can was in her purse.”
Jabari Grimes was arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver schedule II controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also served with the outstanding arrest warrants that included three counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver Mephedrone (bath salts) and four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. Grimes was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center and held under a $50,000 secured bond. Crystal Dawson was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Dawson was confined in the Beaufort County Detention Center under $5,000 secured bond.
