GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Goose Creek Police say a traffic stop led to the arrest of a man who led them on a brief foot chase before being taken into custody.
The man, whose identity was not immediately released, faces charges of trafficking cocaine, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest and various traffic charges, police say.
Police say an officer speeding in a rental vehicle on Highway 52 Friday and pulled the vehicle over. A post from the department’s Facebook page states the officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the car.
