Fugitive arrest leads to 2nd meth lab discovery in Colleton Co.

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators have discovered a second meth lab this week in Colleton County after deputies located a fugitive.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office says 28-year-old Samuel Lane Campbell, who is wanted on multiple warrants, and 29-year-old Megan De Los Santos were both charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, disposal of meth waste and possession of cocaine.

Authorities responded to a home on Cannon Road in Round O after receiving information that Campbell was hiding in a home in the area.

An incident report states that Campbell and De Los Santos were found in a vehicle at the address. Investigators say they found cocaine, methamphetamine and hypodermic needles in Campbell's vehicle.

When investigators searched Campbell's home, the sheriff's office says deputies  located a well organized "one-pot" lab, consisting of all the necessary ingredients and chemicals for meth production, as well as a multitude of hypodermic needles, digital scales, a large amount of meth waste and an undetermined amount of methamphetamine.

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