COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A Goose Creek man is facing charges after authorities say he was caught with a mobile meth lab in Walterboro on Thursday.

According to a Walterboro Public Safety incident report, officers pulled over 34-year-old Troy Layten Harlow around 6 a.m. Thursday after he disregarded a traffic signal.

While officers were interviewing Harlow in the parking lot of the Citgo on South Jeffries Boulevard, they said they saw an open bottle of Paul Masson brandy, so they arrested him.

Following a search of his Buick sedan, officers found marijuana and equipment and chemicals necessary for what narcotics detectives called a "one-pot" method for manufacturing methamphetamine.

Harlow was charged with illegal possession of legal liquor, simple possession of marijuana, and manufacturing methamphetamine.

He was taken to the Colleton County Detention Center for booking.
