FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Two men have been arrested on several drug charges after reportedly leading Florence County deputies on a chase Tuesday evening.

A 2010 Dodge Charger traveling on Cale Yarborough Highway failed to stop for Florence County Sheriff’s Office Deputies on Tuesday and led deputies on a pursuit that ended on Piney Grove Road near Timmonsville, according to Major Michael Nunn, FCSO Public Information Officer.

Deputies saw what was suspected to be narcotics being thrown from the passenger side of the vehicle, according to a news release. When the vehicle came to a stop, the driver and passenger attempted to flee on foot, but were apprehended following a brief foot chase. Both the driver and passenger were in possession of marijuana when they were apprehended, and the narcotics thrown from the vehicle were recovered.

The driver, 25-year-old Vinson Montray Ervin, is charged with failure to stop for blue light, driving under suspension, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and distribution of crack cocaine.

Christopher Velerous Ervin, 29, is charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Both are being held at the Florence County Detention Center on surety bonds, as of Thursday morning.
