An accused shoplifter was arrested on Saturday for methamphetamine possession after drugs were found in his pocket, according to a Rock Hill police report.
Police were called to Walmart on Dave Lyle Boulevard when an employee saw Samuel Rhodes, 32, hide several items in his pants and try to leave the store without paying for them. When confronted by the employee, Rhodes admitted to taking a wireless router, knife, flashlight and a few other items, according to the report.
When an officer was searching Rhodes, he found two small bags in his pocket. One contained a blue pill, which Rhodes said was a Xanax he had been prescribed, and the other had a “white granular substance” that tested positive for methamphetamine, the report states.
Rhodes told the officer that he didn’t know what the substance was because he was wearing someone else’s pants. He didn’t know who owned the pants.
He was charged with possession of methamphetamine and given a shoplifting citation.
