Three Denmark men were arrested on drug charges after leading Orangeburg County Sheriff's deputies on a pursuit Wednesday.

The Sheriff's Office says a deputy tried to pull over the vehicle the men were riding in when the driver took off. The department didn't say where or when the incident occurred.

The vehicle stopped at the Short Stop on Cannon Bridge Road and one of the passengers, Kenneth Lamont Strong, ran off. Deputies say as Strong ran away, he threw away bags of drugs. Strong was arrested with the help of officers from the Orangeburg Department of Public Safety.

Investigators later determined the bags contained marijuana

Jason Lamont Sanders, the driver of the vehicle, and Ricky Lakeith Singleton were arrested also.
