Search warrant leads to drug arrest on Hilton Head


Beaufort County Sheriff's Office drug investigators arrested a Beaufort man on multiple drug offenses Thursday.

Investigators had recently received information that 24-year-old Juan Marquis Clarke was distributing illegal drugs from a hotel off of Museum Street on the northern end of Hilton Head Island.

Controlled purchases of drugs were conducted from Clarke at this location, leading to a search warrant for the premises being obtained.

At 5 p.m. Thursday, the search warrant was executed on Clarke's hotel room.

Clarke was located and arrested on outstanding arrest and bench warrants.

A search of the room yielded quantities of heroin, prescription pills, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
