Deputies: Meth Lab Leaves Large Cleanup Bill

Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) - Deputies arrested two suspects after the discovery of a methamphetamine lab over the weekend.

Officers say they got a complaint call Sunday about a possible meth lab on West Drive near the town of Cassatt. When they arrived, officers say they found the lab off to the side of the home.

As they were investigating, officers say 44-year-old Debra Page Grooms and 40-year-old Lloyd Otis Sams came by the home, then tried to drive off. Officers arrested the two, and discovered that they'd been evicted from the home recently.

Investigators say they found a mobile meth lab in their car.

Sheriff Jim Matthews says the cleanup company hired to remove the lab says that the costs for this particular lab may set a record for the largest waste product by weight of any meth lab in the state. Matthews says it's estimated it will cost between $10-12,000 to clean up the site.
