Community Tip Leads to Heroin Arrests
Friday, June 3, 2011

COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott announced today that a community tip led to yesterdays (June 2nd) arrests of Kimberly Jewel Clark (DOB: 10/19/84) for Trafficking Heroin and Unlawful Conduct Towards a Child and Jason Tyrone Sanders (DOB: 11/8/78) for Trafficking Heroin. Chief Scott stated that during the arrest Clark’s two year old daughter was present and was temporarily taken into protective custody.

Chief Scott said that the Department’s Organized Crime and Narcotics (OCN) Unit received a community tip about drug activity in the vicinity of the 5900 block of North Main Street. As OCN officers conducted surveillance in the area a vehicle was observed entering a parking lot on the 5900 block of N. Main St. and the occupants engaging in what appeared to be a drug transaction. OCN Officers approached the vehicle and observed Clark and Sanders engaged in the use of heroin. Officers immediately placed the two occupants in custody.

Officers seized trafficking quantity of heroin that was located in the back seat of Clark’s vehicle also where her two year old daughter was secured in a child safety seat. The Department of Social Services was contacted and determined that the child could be released to the custody of her father.

Clark and Sanders are currently being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
