Deputies responding to a burglary found a meth lab at a Moncks Corner home on Sunday.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested 21-year-old Brittany Wright, 32-year-old James Truesdale and 30-year-old Jessie Janes. They were all charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute meth.

The sheriff's office says deputies originally responded to a home on 606 Levee Dr. for a burglary and found several people in the house that, according to the homeowner, did not live there and were not supposed to be there.

Deputies then detained everyone while they conducted a protective sweep of the residence.

According to a sheriff's office report, investigators located items used to manufacture meth.

Authorities say additional charges are pending.
