Accidental 911 call led to drug arrest

A 911 call was made from a home on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on January 2, but no one spoke when a dispatcher answered.

When a deputy arrived at the house, a woman whom he had previously arrested met him at the door and tried to keep him in the front yard, saying there were no problems at the house. The deputy smelled marijuana and asked to search the house.

The two men inside the house also tried to keep the deputy in the front yard, but eventually let him in. The deputy found a bag of marijuana in the hall. The woman walked with the officer during the search and said, "Whatever you find, it isn't mine."

The deputy also found crack cocaine. All three were charged with possession of crack cocaine and possession of marijuana. (info from
