— Two Rock Hill residents were arrested on methamphetamine possession charges after police found drugs and drug paraphernalia in their apartment on Patriot Parkway, according to a Rock Hill police report.

An officer saw Edward Grimes, 28, and Kumiko Werner, 27, leaving their apartment on Tuesday night, the report states. When the officer spoke with Werner, she appeared unsteady and said she needed to go to the hospital because she was having trouble breathing.

Grimes told the officer that Werner had anxiety attacks, that they had been fighting and that he had spit on her, according to the report. He also said they had been using methamphetamine for the last four days and had not slept in that time.

Werner was taken to Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.

Grimes was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence. He signed a consent form to allow the officer to search the apartment.

Inside the apartment, officers found six glass pipes, four hypodermic needles, methamphetamine and other items with methamphetamine residue in the apartment, the report states.

Werner was released from the hospital and both she and Grimes were charged with possession of methamphetamine. As of Thursday, Werner was still being held at the York County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond.
