Authorities detain four in meth lab bust, find kids present

According to law enforcement authorities, a South Carolina meth lab bust led to the detention of four adults and the removal of two infants and a teenager. Reportedly, the incident occurred on March 27 in Georgetown County.

According to a release, the 15th Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit served warrants at the residence early in the morning. Upon conducting a search of the premises, authorities allegedly found numerous one-pot meth cookers, paraphernalia and drugs. Officers reportedly found 7.6 grams of methamphetamine and 12.2 grams of marijuana along with scales and packaging materials. A loaded 9 mm gun as well as an altered Hi-Point rifle were also seized.

Officers detained four adults and turned a 15-year-old girl found in the home over to juvenile authorities. Those charged include a 40-year-old man, a 23-year-old man and two 19-year-old women. Officers additionally found a 24-month-old and a 5-month-old in the home. The babies were transported to Georgetown Hospital to be treated and then were taken into the custody of the Department of Social Services. Officers indicated the search came following a two-month long investigation by the Drug Enforcement Unit.

People who are charged with drug crimes have certain Constitutional rights of which they should be aware. In addition to rights concerning searches and seizures, people also have the right to remain silent in the face of police attempts at interrogation as well as the right to ask for an attorney. It is often best for people to assert their rights. An exercise of Constitutional rights cannot be used by the state in its case against the people who have been charged. By contrast, if people submit to interrogation, anything they say can and most likely will be used as evidence against them.
