A Rock Hill man allegedly purchased crack cocaine in his company’s tow truck, according to police.
The manager of Davenport Wrecker Service on South Anderson Road reported to police she believed one of her employees, Anthony Fortier, 30, bought crack cocaine while on his shift Friday evening. She received a tip from another employee that Fortier made the purchase while driving one of the company’s tow trucks, a Rock Hill Police report states.
The manager provided police with Fortier’s description and vehicle information. Police found Fortier in a tow truck on South Anderson Road, and searched the vehicle with his consent.
Police reportedly found .15 grams of a white, rocky substance and a crack pipe in the vehicle.
When confronted about the substance, Fortier stated that he bought the drugs from a fellow employee, police say. He denied buying the crack cocaine while driving the tow truck.
Fortier told police he only smokes crack cocaine occasionally. He said he bought the drug because he was having a long day between his two jobs, the report states.
Fortier has been convicted of crack possession in his past, the report states.
Fortier was arrested and charged with possession of crack cocaine second offense. He is held at the Rock Hill jail on a $15,000 bond.
