FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — Two wanted Florida men were arrested Thursday after they were stopped for speeding along Interstate 95 and deputies found cocaine hidden inside the console of their vehicle.
Adam Morris Flint, 40, and Cornelius Daytron Young, 27, were arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine. Flint was wanted for attempted murder in Florida and Young was wanted for first-degree murder in Florida.
Florence County deputies stopped the vehicle speeding as it was headed south on I-95 near the 159-mile marker. During the stop, deputies said they developed a reasonable suspicion of other criminal activity.
That prompted them to search the vehicle, which led them to find about 30 grams of cocaine, deputies said.
Both Flint and Young are being held without bond at the Florence County Detention Center, according to online jail records.
