Spat over unleashed dog leads to Rock Hill drug arrests

May 25, 2013 

— An argument over a man’s unleashed dog scaring a woman walking her “little” dog in Rock Hill Thursday afternoon led to the arrest of the man and another person after police found drugs in their apartment, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.

Deputies responding to the lady dog owner’s complaint about the unleashed animal on Garden Way in Rock Hill smelled marijuana when questioning Kennith Edward Porter II, 21, according to the report.

Porter shut the door on the deputy, then opened it and allowed the deputy inside after the deputy said he had probable cause to obtain a search warrant after smelling the marijuana, the report states.

The officer found a bong next to a couch, then other officers were called to get a search warrant and alert drug agents as Porter became agitated and was yelling, the report states.

Later a woman, Taylor Nichole Brechbiel, 18, arrived and told officers she also lived there, according to the report.

A search of the apartment found four marijuana cigarettes, a grinder, and prescription pills belonging to someone else.

Police seized the drugs, $270 in cash, and two cell phones, and charged both Porter and Brechbiel with drug possession. Both were later released after posting bond, jail officials said.
