Doing drugs in the car
Police were called around midnight May 3 and told a female was using narcotics in her vehicle in the Family Dollar parking lot on Belle Terre Boulevard.
The suspect, a 31-year-old Carolina Forest woman, told the officer she’d been talking on the phone.
However, according to an Horry County police report, when the suspect got out of the vehicle, the officer saw an open pill bottle in the cup holder.
The suspect admitted to the officer that the pills had not been prescribed to her.
There were eight yellow pills, imprinted with 34R and a wax paper slip with an off-white powder substance in the pill bottle.
The suspect told the officer she thought the powder was heroin.
The suspect was arrested.
Police were called to the The River Walk Inn and Suites on Fantasy Harbor Boulevard because of drowning victim, a May 8 report said.

An anonymous caller reported there were drunk people throwing beer cans out of a vehicle in the Canterbury Apartments parking lot shortly before 7 a.m. on May 7.
One of the three suspects, a 35-year-old male, said the trio had been drinking and playing video games in his apartment, and moved outside to the vehicle so they could smoke cigarettes and not wake his roommate, the report said.
Because the officer smelled marijuana, the suspects were removed from the vehicle and “terry frisks” were conducted, the report said.
A second suspect, a 33-year-old male, said the vehicle was his and gave permission for it to be searched, the report said. No contraband was found.
That suspect picked up all the beer cans, the report said.
The suspects, including the third one who was a 28-year-old male, were warned about littering and drinking in public, and were then escorted back to the first suspect’s apartment.
