— A tip phoned in to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department led to a raid on an apartment at the Gonzales Gardens off Forest Drive on Tuesday.

Travis Gibbs, 32, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute near a school and breach of the peace after officers allegedly found pot and 3.7 grams of crack cocaine in an apartment at 1505 Gonzales Plaza, Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release.

Gibbs is accused of using profanity as he was placed into custody.

He was being transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center Thursday afternoon.
