Usually when you go to a restaurant, you’re there because a business sells food.
But a woman on Hilton Head Island allegedly came to a local restaurant to sell drugs Thursday.
According to a report filed with Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, a witness told law enforcement a woman was attempting to sell illegal drugs at mid-island restaurant and that she smelled strongly of marijuana.
When law enforcement found the woman described by the witness nearby and asked her for her license, a suspected marijuana cigarette fell from her pocket.
In the woman’s backpack, deputies discovered a mason jar filled with plastic baggies and some loose marijuana, along with a clear baggie containing 5.7 grams of cocaine. Police also found a wallet that did not belong to the woman in her backpack.
The woman was arrested for simple possession of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
