Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit agents arrested two men after an attempted traffic stop in Calabash on Friday night yielded the seizure of three guns and 2.5 grams of cocaine.


Quinton Demarr Richburg, aka Quinta D. Richburg, 24, of Brooks Court in Shallotte is charged with fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle, possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, and two counts each of possession of a firearm by a felon and misdemeanor possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

Charles Junior Anderson, 54, of Bellamy Drive in Little River, S.C., is charged with possession of a stolen firearm.

Warrants show Richburg sped away from the agent who tried to stop his rental car on Hickman Road, driving recklessly at more than 15 mph over the 55 mph speed limit before crashing into another vehicle and causing more than $1,000 in property damage.

Warrants also show Richburg, who was convicted in November 2013 of armed robbery with a deadly weapon in May 2012 in Horry County, S.C., and sentenced to seven years in prison, had a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson and a .380-caliber Taurus, in addition to the cocaine, a plastic container to hold marijuana and a “blunt wrapper package” when he was arrested.

According to South Carolina Department of Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services records, Richburg’s community supervision for attempted or allegedly armed robbery began Oct. 1 and was to end Nov. 2, 2019.

North Carolina Department of Correction records show Richburg received probation in October 2011 for committing a crime against nature in November 2010 in Brunswick County.

Richburg is in the Brunswick County Detention Facility on $75,000 bail.

A warrant shows Anderson, Richburg’s passenger, had a 9mm Kel-Tec handgun when he was arrested. He is being held at the jail on $10,600 bail.
