Duo arrested after investigators find 'volatile' mobile meth lab

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators have arrested two people after deputies located a "volatile" mobile meth lab during a traffic stop in Colleton County over the weekend.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office charged 23-year-old Tiffany Gabrielle Blair and 18-year-old Hallie Blocker with possession of methamphetamines.

On Sunday night, near the intersection of Pleasant Grove and McLeod roads, a deputy said he saw a car with what appeared to be altered license tags. According to authorities, after the deputy stopped the car, he detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.

The deputy said the driver did not have any vehicle owner documentation or insurance information. A sheriff's office K-9 unit responded and the canine alerted authorities to the presence of drugs.

An incident report states that an active "One-pot" methamphetamine lab was found inside the car. The DEA Task Force then responded to the traffic stop since authorities say the container and the contents were an "active cook" and was "very volatile."

Both of the suspects were locked up at the Colleton County Detention Center.
