A St. Helena Island man was arrested Tuesday and charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, according to court records.
Deputies were called to Charlie Holmes Lane at about 4 p.m. after a report that a wanted man was in the area, according to Sgt. Robin McIntosh of the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. The deputies spotted the man in a group, but he ran away as they approached, McIntosh said.
After a short chase, officers stopped Erick Holmes, 25, and reportedly seized about 8 grams of crack cocaine, 14 grams of marijuana and $966 cash, McIntosh said. He was also charged with simple possession of marijuana and fleeing to evade. He also was served with warrants for family court and criminal domestic violence.
Holmes was being held Thursday at the Beaufort County Detention Center, with bail set at $27,555, according to the jail log.
