SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A man and a woman are facing charges after police found chemicals used to manufacture meth in a Summerville hotel early Monday.

Summerville police spokesman Captain Jon Rogers said officers originally responded to the Walgreens on North Main Street around 1:45 a.m. after receiving reports of two people who tried to make a purchase with fake identification.

Rogers said officers found fake documents on one of the suspects, Ladson native 30-year-old Crystal Kowalski, and they also found a key card for a hotel room at the Holiday Inn on Holiday Drive.

When officers went to investigate that hotel room, they found several chemicals used to make methamphetamine, according to Rogers.

Kowalski and her accomplice, 26-year-old Christopher Meehan, of Florida are both charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Kowalski is also charged with identity fraud, financial transaction card fraud, possession of financial transaction card forgery device and financial number theft.
