Lancaster man caught with ecstasy pills, other drugs by police

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – A disturbance call for service at a local gas station led to the arrest of a Lancaster County man accused of having ecstasy pills and other drugs overnight, according to the Columbia Police Department.

Adis Glen Crawford III is now charged with possession with intent to distribute ecstasy, possession with intent to distribute hash oil, simple possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.

According to the department, an officer initially went to the S Mart at 321 Greystone Boulevard around 3:30 a.m. for a disturbance complaint involving Crawford.

When the officer arrived on scene and came in contact with the suspect, he immediately smelled an order of marijuana coming from Crawford and his vehicle.

The officer then attempted to search him, but Crawford tried to run away before he was soon caught.

During the eventual arrest, the officer noticed some plastic bags fell out of Crawford’s pocket. The items inside were field-tested positive for ecstasy pills, has oil and marijuana.

Crawford is accused of having close to 50 multi-colored pills in the shape of a cartoon character, 10 grams of hash oil in canisters and a small amount of marijuana.

A handgun was also found inside Crawford’s car, but it didn’t come back as stolen after a check through the officer’s database. All items were seized and submitted as evidence.

Crawford is still at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center under a $150,000 personal recognizance bond for the ecstasy pills and a $1,702 PR bond for the hash oil.
