Mother, teen children among those arrested on drug charges

CATAWBA -- A mother, her sons and her boyfriend are among four people who face charges after a drug bust Friday night.

Dawn Vinson Rogers, 37, and Darryl Cory Bennett, 23, both of 2721 Harmony Road, were charged Friday with possession with intent to distribute cocaine; possession with intent to distribute marijuana; possession of Ecstasy; possession of Xanax; and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, said Marvin Brown, commander of the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit.

Rogers' 17-year-old son, Ted William Long Jr., was charged with possession of cocaine, according to Brown and reports from the York County Sheriff's Office. Police also charged Long's 15-year-old brother, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, with possession of cocaine, the report states.

Janet Hinson Long, 32, of 2039 Chestnut Lane in Edgemoor was charged with possession of Xanax. Authorities charged 19-year-old Bryan Chase Griffin of 2049 Franklin St. in Rock Hill with possession of cocaine and possession of beer under 21, according to the report.

About 6 p.m. Friday, authorities say they searched the house at 2721 Harmony Road and found Bennett and Rogers with cocaine, marijuana and Ecstasy and Xanax pills, the report states. When officers searched a truck that Griffin drove to the house, they discovered several beers and plastic bags containing cocaine, according to the report.

Authorities seized 1.8 grams of cocaine, 210 grams of marijuana, seven Ecstasy and 3 Xanax pills, as well as 11 beers, two sets of digital scales and three boxes of drug-packaging materials. According to the report, they also recovered $1,638 from Bennett and Rogers.

Bennett, whose bond was set at $12,000, remained in custody Saturday night at the York County Detention Center. Bond was set at $1,500 for Ted Long, who remained in custody at the center.

Dawn Rogers was released on a $12,000 bond, and Janet Long was released on a $1,500 bond. No information was available on the 15-year-old's bond.
