Man released on bond arrested again on drug charges, say police

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A Charleston man who was out on bond on an attempted murder charge was arrested Thursday on drug charges after officers executed a search warrant at his Smith Street home.

According to Charleston police, 28-year-old Timothy Montez Wright was charged with trafficking cocaine and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute within close proximity of a school.

He is being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.

Police saidWright's arrest is a good example of why they support Senate Bill 19, a bill that addresses the issue of suspects committing crimes while out on bond for other crimes.

"Only by working together can law enforcement, citizens of this state and our public officials help ensure that those who are accused of committing a crime don't have a revolving door that allows them the ability to continue to do violence against law abiding citizens," said Charleston Chief of Police Greg Mullen.
