Lots of Busted People

While we appreciate having them off the streets for a short time, taking this many at once put a strain on our research capabilities. Suffice it to say this is not the first arrest for most of these folks.

Steven Lama Limehouse

In March 1992, in Dorchester county, he was charged with an unknown offense and pled guilty to it. Limehouse was also charged with Resisting Arrest and Distribution of Crack Cocaine. He was sentenced to five years for the unknown offense and fifteen years for the crack distribution.

Take Steven Lama Limehouse. He was arrested in Dorchester County in July of 1992 for Pointing and Presenting a Firearm. The charge was dismissed at the preliminary hearing by Judge Rodney Peeples.

Limehouse apparently did some time in prison because we don't hear from him again until 2001 when was arrested in Berkeley County. He was charged with Distribution of Crack Cocaine and Possession of Cocaine. The 9th Circuit Solicitor dismissed both charges.

In November of 2002 Limehouse arrested in Dorchester County for Possession of Crack, Distribution Near a School and Trafficking in Cocaine. Three years after the arrest the 1st Circuit Solicitor dropped all the charges.

Limehouse was arrested in Berkeley County in 2008. He was charged with PWID Near a School and Possession of Cocaine Base. The school charge was dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor in exchange for a guilty plea to the crack charge. Judge Roger Young sentenced Limehouse to the thirty days he had already served in jail.

Robert Devane Ancrum

Robert Devane Ancrum also has multiple drug related arrested in Dorchester County and Berkeley County. In May of 2002 he was charged with Failure to Stop for a Blue Light and Possession of Crack Cocaine. He pled guilty and was sentenced by Judge Goodstein one year suspended on two years probation for the failure to stop charge. The sentence on the crack cocaine charge was three years suspended on three years probation.

September of 2003 brought charges against Ancrum of two counts PWID Crack Cocaine Near a School, Possession of Schedule I, II, or III narcotics. Both school charges were dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor. Ancrum pled guilty to the possession charge and was sentenced under the Youthful Offender Act to a term not to exceed five years.

In January of 2007 Ancrum was charged in Berkeley County with Unlawful Carrying of a Concealed Weapon. The charge was dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

Later in 2007 he was arrested for 3rd Offense Possession of Crack Cocaine and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. The solicitor took the guilty plea on the paraphernalia charge and dismissed the crack cocaine charge. Ancrum was sentenced to a $300 fine or thirty days in jail.

In 2009 Ancrum was charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and PWID Crack Cocaine Near a School. Once again the 1st Circuit Solicitor allowed him to plead guilty to the paraphernalia charge and dismissed the crack cocaine charge. Ancrum was sentenced to time served.

And so it goes with most of the twelve drug dealers arrested.
