First meth lab in years raided in Kershaw County

Feb 6, 2011 9:16:00 PM - thestate.com
Kershaw County sheriff’s deputies raided a methamphetamine lab at a lake house on Lake Wateree early Sunday, arresting two men and two women.

The lab, which was contaminated by the toxic chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine, was the first uncovered in years in Kershaw County, the Sheriff’s Department said. Sheriff Jim Matthews called in a SLED unit, whose members wear protective suits and breathe through respirators, to process the scene.

“The chemicals used to produce this illegal drug are highly toxic and flammable,” Matthews said.

Kershaw deputies discovered the lab acting on an anonymous tip that people in the house were creating a disturbance, said Matthews. The lab was capable of producing two ounces of meth a day, and an ounce of meth can sell for up to $2,500, Matthews said.

Facing various methamphetamine charges are: Zachary Harkins, 24; Correy Garrison, 22; Megan Smith, 22; and Carey Rice, 24.
