WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Three people are behind bars after police found ingredients to produce meth in a Jeep during a traffic stop in West Ashley.

The Charleston Police Department charged 33-year-old Brandi Ellen Carter, 31-year-old Anthony Joseph Attard and 32-year-old James Theron Whatley with possession with intent to distribute/manufacture meth and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.

On Tuesday morning, a police officer was patrolling the area of Savannah Highway and I-526 when he spotted a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The officer said he knew the vehicle may have been involved in a theft at the Motel 6 on Savannah Highway several days ago.

The officer then stopped the Jeep at the BP gas station on 1805 Savannah Hwy.

According to police, the Jeep's driver, Whaley, appeared nervous and could not articulate to the officer where he was traveling to. An incident report states that Whaley, Attard and Carter began giving different locations to where they were headed to.

Police then asked the three to get out of the vehicle. An incident report states that investigators found items in the Jeep that are used to produce methamphetamine.

The three suspects were arrested and transported to the Charleston County Detention Center where detention officers reported locating crack cocaine, marijuana, heroin and an unknown pill on Attard.

Authorities say Whaley was found with two foil gum wrappers containing a white rock like substance presumed to be crack, as well as a another gum wrapper containing heroin.
