Two Florida men were arrested on drug and fraud charges after they used another person’s credit card to book a Rock Hill hotel room, according to a police report.

Demetrius Marquis Robinson, 23, Fort Lauderdale, and James Edward Maxwell, 25, of Lauderdale Lakes, were arrested by Rock Hill police on Tuesday night and charged with marijuana possession and defrauding a hotel keeper.

According to the report, a credit card was fraudulently used to reserve a room at the Comfort Suite Inn off of Old Springfield Road. The hotel manager notified police that the room charges were not authorized by the credit card holder and unlocked the room for officers.

When police checked the empty hotel room, they found a bag of marijuana and asked the manager to notify police again once the suspects returned to the room.

Both men were later arrested and taken to the Rock Hill jail.

Police seized 15 grams of marijuana and nearly $5,700 in cash.
