ROCK HILL — A woman distraught about an argument with her friend over possibly stolen crack cocaine and a broken cell phone in a Rock Hill motel was taken to jail this weekend after police found the drug in her pockets, though she denied ever using it, authorities say.
Police were sent to the Rock Hill Motel on Riverview Road at about 10:50 am. Saturday after they were called about a possible assault. Police spoke with Angela Smith Greene, 41, upset and crying at the front desk, according to a Rock Hill police report. She told police she was visiting a friend in one of the rooms when they began to argue. The argument turned physical when her friend allegedly grabbed her cell phone, broke it in half and then grabbed her left wrist.
The woman told officers she has known her “friend” for nearly a year, the report states. When police asked her why they were arguing, she told officers that her friend, a man in his mid-40s, accused her of stealing a crack rock from him. Greene took officers to the room. She began moving her hands around while they were inside her jacket, prompting officers to search her. In her left pocket, she stashed a piece of rolling paper that smelled like marijuana. Police also found several pieces of crack cocaine in her pocket and a glass pipe with drug residue at both ends.
Greene told police that she did not smoke any crack cocaine, the report states. She told police she had used marijuana in the past, but has since stopped. Police charged her with possession of crack cocaine and violation on premises of a hotel with drugs. The motel’s front desk clerk gave police information about Greene’s friend, who rented the room. They were unable to find him. Greene on Monday was being held at the York County Detention Center on a $12,500 bond.
