2 men drove through police station lot with crack cocaine, police say


CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – Two men driving through the restricted area of the police station had crack cocaine on them, police said.

A crack pipe fell out of one man’s pocket when he got out of the car, according to the report.

Police stopped a car driving through the restricted area of the police department parking lot on N. Main St. in Conway on Wednesday.

 As a result of the traffic stop, two people—Anthony James Morea and Colin Stuart Turnnidge III—were arrested. They now face multiple drug charges. 

When Morea exited the vehicle during the traffic stop, a glass pipe commonly used for smoking crack cocaine fell to the ground from his shorts, police said.

During a probable cause search of both subjects and the vehicle, crack cocaine was located on Turnnidge, heroin (.5 grams) was located in Morea’s waistband, and more crack cocaine was found under the driver’s side floor mat.

Morea was charged with possession of crack cocaine and possession with intent to distribute heroin.

Turnnidge was charged with possession of crack cocaine.

Last week, Turnnidge was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony in an armed robbery that started as a Tinder date. 

According to Horry County police, the victim met another man, Kevin James Doyle, on Tinder and planned to meet at Magoo’s Sports & Spirits. When the two met at the bar, Doyle is believed to have robbed the victim at knifepoint.
