Gaston man arrested on drug, weapon charges

Lexington, SC 04/29/2021 – Lexington County deputies conducted a traffic stop Thursday that led to the seizure of more than 400 grams of cocaine and a gun.

Shakur Hakeem, 46, is charged with trafficking cocaine, three counts of possession of a firearm during a violent crime, possession of more than 15 MDMA pills, and possession of marijuana, according to arrest warrants.

“Deputies conducted a traffic stop on Hakeem Thursday,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “They seized two ounces of marijuana and more than $6,000 in cash.”

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Hakeem’s residence, where they found approximately four pounds of cocaine in a shed on the property, according to Koon. Hakeem said the shed belonged to him. Deputies later found three guns during their search of the property.

Hakeem is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center after a magistrate judge denied his bond.
