BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – At approximately 3:00 p.m., deputies with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office located a red Jeep Liberty parked in the woods in the back of College Park Estates.

Authorities stated that upon trying to make contact with the occupants of the vehicle, it attempted to flee. Deputies located the vehicle on Drexel Road, and conducted a traffic stop, all occupants were detained, and a probable cause search was conducted due to the odor of marijuana.

A cereal box was located on the back seat which contained 11 homemade rice crispy type treats that were individually wrapped in foil, according to authorities.

Both defendants identified the substance as edible marijuana, and they claimed possession of them. The substance tested positive for THC, so they were transported to the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.

Kara Hamilton and Khafre Johnson-Williams are charged with Possession with the Intent to Distribute Marijuana.
