Drug arrest made in parking lot near sheriff's office


South Carolina deputies arrested a North Carolina man on drug charges in a parking lot just outside of the sheriff's office. The State newspaper ( ) reports that deputies who handle security at the building housing the York County Sheriff's office noticed something unusual in a parking lot outside the building on Friday. Marvin Brown, commander of the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, said Kevin Michael Tracey, 40, of Charlotte, was charged Friday with felony methamphetamine possession. After seeing something unusual outside, deputies called in a drug unit with canines to investigate. Brown said the dog detected something on the driver's side door of the vehicle and deputies found a syringe filled with drugs. Online jail records indicate he was in jail on Saturday.
