A 45-year-old Orangeburg man is accused of trafficking cocaine after officers allegedly found 35 grams in his possession early Monday morning.
Anthony Lamont Googe of 2230 Charleston Road appeared before a municipal judge who set his bond at $25,000 cash or surety.
Googe’s arrest warrant states that officers arrested him at 6 a.m. at the Baymont Inn at 2350 Chestnut Street.
When officers frisked Googe, they located a “large bulge in his left jacket pocket,” the warrant states.
Officers allege the bulge was a black bag which contained 16 clear plastic bags of crack cocaine and 23 red capsules of crack cocaine.
Officers also located $900 cash in his possession. They placed the money into evidence.
According to an incident report, Googe told officers that neither the bag nor the jacket belonged to him.
He told officers that he picked up the jacket from a sofa in his living room.
He also told officers his wife sent him to the Baymont Inn to pick up a female and take her to work.
