DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) After arresting two men for possession of methamphetamine, Darlington County drug agents have discovered a "shake and bake" lab Wednesday.

Capt. Andy Locklair, spokesman for the Darlington County Sheriff's Office, said agents arrested Cody W. Chrismon as well as Weston S. Privette. After those arrests were made, agents then found what they called a shake and bake meth lab along Cherokee Street in the Hartsville area of Darlington County.

Six grams of meth were discovered with a street value of $1,000.

Locklair said a hazmat team responded to the scene and cleaned up the lab.

Chrismon has been charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine. Privette has been charged with possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a scheduled IV substance and possession of a scheduled II substance.
