Three teenagers and one juvenile were arrested Tuesday for unlawful possession of firearms and drugs, according to a police report.

The arrests come after officers responded to the Sonic at Rivertown Boulevard around 8 p.m. on Tuesday to assist a SLED officer who saw a group "moving firearms from a small red vehicle to a blue minivan," according to the report.

The SLED officer saw the group move several firearms, including an assault rifle and a sawed off shotgun, according to the report.

When officers arrived on the scene, the four were arrested and three weapons were secured by police, according to the report.

The juvenile had a .9mm Ruger pistol "on his person" and threw it under the car while he was being arrested, police say.

He was also searched and police say they found a plastic baggy with a "green leafy substance consistent to marijuana" in his pocket, along with a small scale, consistent with weighing narcotics, and a rifle round 7.62 caliber bullet, according to the report.

The juvenile was charged with simple possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful carry of a pistol, possession of a sawed-off shotgun and unlawful possession of a weapon by certain persons. He was transported to DJJ Columbia for processing, as stated in the report.

Jordan Aarron Brooks, 19, of Conway was charged with possession of a sawed-off shotgun and transported to Horry County Detention Center, according to the report.

The other two teens were inside of the red vehicle, a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse, at the time of the incident, police say.

William Abe John Clemons, 19, of Conway was sitting in the rear passenger seat, where police found a "green leafy bud consistent with marijuana," as stated in the report.

Rebecca Paige Minzer, 17, of Conway was the driver of the car. Both Clemons and Minzer denied ownership of the marijuana so they were both placed under arrest for simple possession of marijuana and transported to Horry County Detention Center, police say.
