Two South Carolina men, one of whom was found with $16,000 worth of marijuana, were arrested on drug charges Friday after the vehicles they were traveling in were stopped by a K-9 unit in Lexington County.
Qureshi Kenta Dowling, 32, of Greenville, and Stanford Demetrice Felder, 26, of Denmark, were stopped by officers on Friday, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department reported Saturday. The two were traveling in separate cars between Swansea and Gaston.
A police dog signaled the presence of drugs in one vehicle. Ten pounds of marijuana worth about $16,000 and $6,000 in cash were seized, the department reported.
Dowling had planned to sell the marijuana to Felder, who was going to sell it in smaller quantities, officials said. Dowling was charged with trafficking in marijuana and Felder, with possession. Both men were awaiting bond hearings at the Lexington County Detention Center on Saturday.
