ORANGEBURG CO., S.C. (WCBD) – The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) arrested Kamal Morton (26) following a vehicle chase and search that yielded a large amount of drug paraphernalia.
During a December 19 search, investigators found “a stash of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, crack cocaine, marijuana and alprazolam that had a conservative street value placed on it at $15,000” in addition to a loaded .45 caliber handgun, digital scales, and plastic bags.
The following day, officers tried to conduct a traffic stop on Morton, at which point he sped away and then fled on foot into a residence.
Officers searched the residence and found more drugs, some of which Morton tried to hide in a toilet bowl, valued at “just over $7,600.”
His charges include: possession with intent to distribute ecstasy, possession with intent to distribute alprazolam, trafficking heroin and possession with intent to distribute marijuana
Bond was deferred to a circuit court.
According to OCSO, Morton was just released from prison last year on 2016 drug charges.
