Six people were jailed on drug charges after officers on patrol saw a man wanted on a bench warrant sitting on the porch of a Rock Hill home Thursday, according to Rock Hill Police.

Officers on patrol about 4:30 p.m. saw 24-year-old Derrick Durham sitting on the porch of 648 Walnut St., according to a police report. Durham was known to have a bench warrant with Rock Hill Police, so officers approached him and took him into custody. Several other people were seen inside the home.

Durham’s brother, Shawn Durham, was inside the home and was wanted by the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, police said. Brittany Singleton, 24, lives at the home and was asked along with the other occupants to step outside.

Officers searched the group, house and a car in the driveway and recovered a digital scale, large amount of cash, 92.5 pills of Xanax, 32 grams of marijuana, a 9 mm gun with the serial number obliterated and a .32 caliber revolver, according to the report.

No one claimed ownership of any of the items.

Derrick Durham, Shawn Durham, Brittany Singleton, Donnell Durham, Quavious Rhodes and Demetrius Robinson were all arrested on charges of drug possession with the intent to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute in the proximity of a school or park.
