Poss with the Intent to Deliver Crack Cocaine

On September 21, 2009 at 7:15 p.m. Ptlm.Andrew Garcia was traveling through the 100 block of Centre Street when he saw a small group of subjects standing together. Ptlm. Garcia recognized one of the subjects in the crowd and was aware that he was wanted on an outstanding warrant. Ptlm. Garcia turned around to come back to the area the crowd was standing in and they dispersed. Ptlm. Garcia attempted to apprehend Clifton Curtis Slaughter III although Slaughter quickly circled around an E. Burke Street residence before Ptlm. Garcia could apprehend him. Ptlm. J. Harper and Ptlm. D. North arrived on the scene to assist Ptlm. Garcia in searching the path that Slaughter took around the residence before being taken into custody. During the search of that area officers located a loaded handgun and ammunition.

Clifton Curtis Slaughter III was charged with Felony Possession with the Intent to Deliver Crack Cocaine. Slaughter was placed in the Eastern Regional Jail to await arraignment before a Berkeley County Magistrate.

The investigation is continuing in the case of the firearm.
