Three people were jailed Thursday after a suspect ran from a traffic stop into a Jefferson Avenue home, where officers found cocaine, marijuana and ecstasy, according to Rock Hill Police.

Shawn Durham, 29, of Glenarden Drive was charged with possession of crack, resisting police and no driver’s license and jailed under $6,500 bond, police say.

Additionally, Crystal Roulhac, 33, of Jefferson Avenue was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of ecstasy and jailed under $3,500 bond. Shavonya Locke, 44, of Jefferson Avenue, was charged with disorderly conduct and failure to identify and jailed under $760 bond, according to police records.

All three remained in the Rock Hill city jail Friday.

Officers pulled over a vehicle on Jefferson Avenue about 9:15 p.m. for a broken brake light, and the driver, Durham, fled on foot, according to a police report. Durham ran into a home on the 700 block of Jefferson Avenue, where police detained him. He struggled with officers and threw his ID, a wad of cash and a small plastic bag of crack on the floor, the report states.

While arresting Durham, officers saw another plastic bag of crack in an ash tray in the corner of the room, police said. Roulhac gave consent to search the home, and officers found a small bag of marijuana and five “dosage units” of ecstasy in her bedroom, which she admitted were hers. Roulhac denied possession of the crack in the corner of the room.

During the incident, Locke continuously “yelled profanity in the street in view of the public and also was instigating a commotion with a large crowd of onlookers,” the report states.
