A Beaufort man and a St. Helena Island woman were charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute after being questioned by a Port Royal police officer near Casablanca Park, according to an incident report.

Alexis Khamari Sutton, 19, and Bernard Robinson Jr., 24, were charged after an officer spotted them in a white sedan parked at 11:45 p.m. Wednesday near woods by the park.

The vehicle smelled of marijuana, and Robinson reportedly told the officer, "Sir, I'm not going to lie to you, we just finished smoking a blunt when you pulled up."

Police found a bottle of prescription Concerta pills made out to another person. Concerta is prescribed for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Sutton said a relative gave them to her two years ago, according to police.

Marijuana drug paraphernalia also was found, and Sutton's purse contained a North Carolina driver's license that did not belong to her, the report said.
