LAUREL HILL — Three people — two men and a woman — were arrested this week after Scotland County Sheriff’s deputies found a meth lab at a home off Country Mile Road.

Deputies were called to a home in Laurel Hill about trespassers in the woods behind the home, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies arrived they didn’t find anyone at that home, but found power running to another residence. When deputies went to that other residence, a man tried to flee and was arrested on a probation violation and another man was detained, investigators said.

When deputies entered the home, they found a bottle “containing white sludge type substance” in the kitchen, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The Narcotic’s Unit identified the bottle as a “Shake and Bake one pot” Methamphetamine lab.

Several chemical ingredients known as precursors for meth production were also found in the kitchen, investigators said.

Another “shake-and-bake” meth lab was also found nearby and lead to the arrest of one woman, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Three people arrested were:

John Eric Williams, 30, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine; maintain dwelling; felony conspiracy; possession of methamphetamine precursors; and probation violation.

Tyler Mathie, 30, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine; maintain dwelling; felony conspiracy; possession of methamphetamine precursors; and was served an outstanding warrant out of Richmond County.

Kimberly Brigman, 44, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine; maintain dwelling; felony conspiracy; possession of methamphetamine precursors
