      Two people have been arrested after a meth lab was found Wednesday morning at the corner of South Botany Drive and Woodbine Avenue, according to Captain Michael Nunn with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

      Michael Hicks, 31, of Florence, was arrested and charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Resisting Arrest, Breach of Peace and Threatening the Life of a Public Official.

      Shiloh Norwood, 32, of Florence, was arrested and charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine.
