DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the Berkeley and Dorcheter county sheriff offices are reporting that investigators have busted a number of meth labs since Monday.

According to authorities with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office, investigators busted three meth labs on Monday and are currently working on others on Tuesday.

Berkeley investigators arrested 41-year-old Richard Anthony Shultz at his home on 2660 Mudville Rd. in Cross after deputies reported finding several materials used to produce a "one pot" or "shake and bake" method of making meth plus a bag containing meth.

Shultz was charged with possession with intent to distribute and manufacture methamphetamine.

Agents also arrested 31-year-old Jennifer Atkinson and charged her with manufacturing meth and exposing a child to methamphetamine. In Bonneau, deputies arrested 42-year-old William Clifford Casselman after investigators say they located several components consistent with a meth lab at a home on Long Acre Drive.

Meanwhile, the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office released two statements earlier on Tuesday stating crews were on the scene of two meth labs in their jurisdiction.

The first reported meth lab on Tuesday was at an address on 264 Chaussee Blvd in Summerville, while the other was reportedly at location on 264 Cheyenne Rd. in Jedburg.

Since Monday, the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office has reported four meth lab investigations.

Lt. Max Dorsey with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division said on Tuesday," I am unhappy to report that we broke last year's record yesterday. In 2012, there were 538 meth labs reported in SC. For 2013, as of this moment, we are at 541."
