Officers found two bags of suspected cocaine in a drainage pipe at 212 Brown’s Alley, a statement from the CPSO said.

Two of the suspects, Green and Harrell, tried to flee, and Harrell had allegedly tried to flush some of the drugs down a toilet in the residence, the statement said.

An officer discovered the drugs when they exited a pipe behind the house.

All four suspects were on probation, and so were also charged with probation violation.
