ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. — An Orangeburg County man with a lengthy criminal history can now add drug charges to the list.
Deputies were running a drug prevention operation Thursday when they noticed a moped driving by on the wrong side of the road. They tried to stop the moped, but the driver road off.
A slow-speed chase ensued until the driver crashed and fled on foot. He was apprehended a short time later.
The driver, 32-year-old Donald Harmon, was found with a revolver and bag filled with 126 grams of marijuana. He was arrested and charged with several drug and weapon charges, along with resisting arrest. His bond was set at $37,822.
He was also served a bench warrant for failing to appear for a driving under suspension charge, for which he was convicted.
Deputies say Harmon is no stranger to run-ins with the law. At the time, he was out on bond for reportedly shooting into a car full of people at a gas station in 2017. In 2011, he was also arrested after a bystander was shot and killed over an argument about a dog.
