Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - Lexington County deputies have arrested five people after the discovery of methamphetamine lab.

Officers took the following suspects into custody and charged them with manufacturing methamphetamines:

  • Brian Keith Benson, 33, of West Columbia
  • Ernest Charles Lake, 50, of Lexington
  • Cynthia Harsey Nantz, 54, of Lexington
  • Tony Rosco, 37, of Wagener
  • Amber Nicole Stacy, 36, of Lexington

Narcotics officers developed information that there was a meth lab at a home on Longview Street where Lake, Nantz and Stacy live.

Just before 9 p.m. Tuesday, officers went to the home to investigate and say they smelled a strong chemical odor in the home. Deputies also reported seeing a black bag on the front porch that had drug-making materials, and they say they found a small amount of meth.

Officers say they found the five suspects standing near a camper in the backyard of the home.
