MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Officers discovered methamphetamines, heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, and pills on two suspects in the area of Cookout’s parking lot, located on 1800 North Kings Highway, Wednesday, according to a police report from Myrtle Beach Police Department.

Whitney Coleman and Edward Ruhl were in a blue Ford Explorer, which was reported as stolen, when police arrived at the location.

Ruhl was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute (PWID) crack cocaine, PWID methamphetamines, and PWID heroin. Coleman was charged with possession of crack cocaine and PWID methamphetamines.
