Drug Distribution Charge

A late Friday night arrest this past weekend led to a drug distribution charge. A Laurens County Sheriff’s Deputy arrested 46-year-old Eric Christian Chart of the 400 block on West Georgia Road, Woodruff, issuing a ticket charging him with Driving under Suspension on Interstate 385 in the Gray Court area just after 11:30 Friday night. Mr. Chart was later served with a warrant charging him with Possession of Marijuana with Inttent to Distribute. It alleges he had possession of individually wrapped packages of a green leafy substance which weighed roughly 42 grams Friday night. Eric Christian Chart was released from the Johnson Detention Center Sunday on posting cash or surety bonds totaling $6,270.
