Police: Rock Hill man choked woman, stole her car at CVS

A Rock Hill man accused of choking a woman and stealing her car was later caught with drugs by narcotics officers Friday night, police say.

Rock Hill police have charged Lamarcus Treyon Williamson, 30, with grand larceny and strong arm robbery, according to police documents. The York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit charged him with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine near a park, possession with intent to distribute crack and possession of crack near a park.

Both drug charges mark a fourth offense for Williamson, according to reports. He is being held in Moss Justice Center on a $45,000 bond.

About 10 p.m. Friday, a 21-year-old Laurens woman parked her 2009 Pontiac Vibe at the CVS on Cherry Road, according to a Rock Hill police report. A man, later identified as Williamson, approached her near the Redbox DVD rental machine and told her to give him her keys.

After she refused, he grabbed her around the neck with his arm and snatched the keys from her, the report states. He drove from the CVS down Charlotte Avenue toward McDow Drive.

Officers put out an alert for the man and the car, the report states.

Drug unit officers saw a car matching the description and stopped Williamson on Fargo Street near the Boyd Hill Community Center, according to reports. They found 7.8 grams of cocaine and 2 grams of crack with him.

Williamson was then arrested and charged.
