COLUMBIA, SC - Acting Columbia Police Chief Ruben Santiago announces the arrests of two men accused of trafficking a large amount of marijuana from Atlanta to Columbia.

Antonie Terrell Parker (DOB: 5-26-1986) and Roger Rivers (DOB: 11-3-1985) were arrested today.

Parker is charged with Trafficking Marijuana, Transporting Narcotics in a Motor Vehicle and Possession of a Pistol during Commission of a Violent Crime.

Rivers is charged with Trafficking Marijuana and Possession of a Pistol during Commission of a Violent Crime.

CPD’s Narcotics Unit received information that drugs were being transported by a commercial bus from Atlanta, Georgia to Columbia.

Parker allegedly picked up Rivers at the Greyhound bus station on Gervais Street and the pair drove to the 4200 block of Devine Street.

CPD then initiated a lawful traffic stop on Devine Street and discovered approximately 24 ½ pounds of marijuana with an estimated worth of $40,000 in a suitcase.

A trained narcotics K9 Officer alerted to the vehicle and assisted in locating the marijuana which was packaged in several layers of plastic wrap.

Officers also located and seized two, 40-caliber pistols and $1,000 in cash.

Both suspects will be booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

All persons arrested/charged are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
