72-year-old Villager arrested at Laurel Manor with cocaine and marijuana

Reginald Odell Kincer

A 72-year-old Villager was arrested Thursday evening at Laurel Manor Recreation Center after he was found to be in possession of cocaine and marijuana.

Sumter County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the recreation center at about 6:30 p.m. to investigate a report of a suspicious person in the parking lot. Deputies spotted a car with the engine running and a door open. When deputies approached the car, a strong odor of marijuana was detected.

The driver, Reginald Odell Kincer, reached into a satchel around his shoulder and pulled out a cylindrical container which held a green leafy substance later determined to be marijuana. Kincer claimed he was able to possess marijuana under “Indian law.”

A search of Kincer’s vehicle turned up five more balls of marijuana along with three pipes.

Kincer was transported to the Sumter County Detention Center and during the booking process, cocaine was found in a plastic bag in his wallet.

He was arrested on charges of possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana and possession of drug equipment. He was released after posting $5,000 bond.
