FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A woman who was arrested in a vehicle hours after it was stolen had marijuana on ecstasy on her, and after further investigation, was found to be linked to another carjacking and an armed robbery in Florence.

Cameshia Shane Barris, 28, was arrested at about 3:50 a.m. Thursday morning after officers found her driving on Prout Drive near Church Street, driving a car that was stolen during a carjacking a few hours earlier on Beltline Drive, according to a news release from the Florence Police Department. She was in possession of substances believed to be marijuana and ecstasy.

After further investigation, officers linked Barris to another carjacking on Palmetto Street at about 10:20 p.m., the armed robbery of the Phoenix Mart on David McLeod Blvd. at about 10:56 p.m., and other incidents outside the Florence city limits, the release states.

Barris was taken to the Florence County Detention Center and charged with possession of ecstasy and simple possession of marijuana. Investigators are seeking warrants against Barris for armed robbery, two counts of carjacking, and use of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

    Leaders say Legends Drive needs improvements, but who could pay for it?

    Improvements for Legends Drive, a continuously growing area, has been a topic of discussion for leaders and homeowners over the last several months, but the question is exactly how those improvements are going to be paid for.   Horry County Councilman Johnny Vaught said the area around Legends Drive is constantly bringing new housing developments and if that’s going to continue, the now privately-owned road needs to be fixed.
