Darlington County Sheriffs Deputies and narcotics agents were called to the 400 block of Rio Drive in Darlington for a suspected meth lab, according to Captain Andy Locklair
Units were called to the location after a man there said he had been using meth all night and feared someone was trying to kill him, Locklair said in a press release. When units arrived they met with the man in the front yard. The man was under the influence and had to be taken to an area hospital.
Authorities discovered three trash burn piles in the back yard containing items associated with cooking meth.
Police then backed away from the house and called narcotic units to the location.
Two more people came out of the house before a search warrant was secured and units wearing protective gear entered the house.
Agents did not find an active lab, but did find materials associated with a meth lab. Agents also found a small quantity of marijuana and what is believed to be meth.
Two arrests have been made in the case. Names and charges have not been released at this time because of the ongoing investigation.
