ROCK HILL — A city employee vacuuming out a police car at the Rock Hill Operations Center told authorities he found what appeared to be a bag of crack cocaine in the floorboard on Wednesday.
At about 1:50 p.m., police went to the operations center at 757 S. Anderson Road after an employee, 25, said he was cleaning vehicle No. 92 when the vacuum sucked up a bag of crack cocaine, according to a Rock Hill Police report.
He said the bag came from under the front passenger seat area, the report states. Police said they recovered 2.32 grams of crack and destroyed it.
The car was an off-line police vehicle that city officials were stripping and retrofitting back into a regular car, devoid of police sirens, lights and anything else that would distinguish it as a police officer’s car, said Rock Hill Police Lt. Brad Redfearn.
“There are times when contraband is found in police vehicles after suspects are arrested,” he said.
