Orangeburg County

Sheriff’s Office

A 39-year-old Orangeburg man is accused of having baggies of cocaine and marijuana on a Coleman Avenue porch on Monday.

Edward Haynes of 433 Sellers Avenue is charged with possession of ammunition by a person convicted of a violent felony, first-offense possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute cocaine within close proximity to Nix Elementary School, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies came into contact with Haynes as they were conducting a property check at the Coleman Avenue residence, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

Two men were sitting on the porch when deputies arrived. When deputies tried to interact with them, the men went inside the residence.

A man exited the house and asked deputies about their visit. A deputy told the man he needed to speak with the two men who were on the porch.

Haynes returned outside. A dispatcher confirmed that the sheriff’s office had an outstanding warrant for Haynes’ arrest.

Deputies also noted that there were two small baggies of what appeared to be cocaine and a baggie of what appeared to be marijuana on the porch where Haynes sat, the report said.

“I also observed a scale and two gun magazines with ammunition right beside the narcotics,” a deputy wrote in his report.

While Haynes sat in a patrol car and a deputy spoke with him, four 9mm bullets rolled out of his pocket and landed on the seat, the report states.

The incident report states that the Department of Social Services will review the case because Haynes allegedly had drugs and weapons around two small children.
