A Colorado woman was charged Sunday with four drug offenses, including manufacturing hashish oil, after a man walking his dog found marijuana in bushes near her Hilton Head Island apartment, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

Denver resident Alison Carroll Barber, 28, was charged with manufacturing hashish, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute Ecstasy and possession of cocaine. Barber and her boyfriend, 29-year-old William Charles Pohlman, also of Colorado, admitted to accidentally starting a fire Saturday in their Ocean Gate Villas apartment while trying to extract hashish oil from marijuana, a news release said.

Pohlman, who was taken to Hilton Head Hospital and later the Augusta (Ga.) Burn Center to treat injuries to his hands, faces the same charges after he is released from the hospital, the news release said.

Investigators searched the couple's Nissan Altima, finding 3.7 kilograms of marijuana, 2.9 grams of Ecstasy, one gram of cocaine and items used in manufacturing hashish, the release said.

Barber was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center, where her bail was set at $50,000, the release said.
