MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Two men are facing charges after police discovered and dismantled an active meth lab at the Polynesian Beach and Golf Resort.

Several hotel rooms surrounding it were evacuated around 2 a.m. as Myrtle Beach Police removed the mobile "shake and bake" lab from the scene, officials said. SLED was called into investigate.

The two men, 43-year-olds Cecil Travis Francis and Urban O'Shea, were booked into the Myrtle Beach Jail and charged with the manufacture and distribution of meth. O'Shea was also charged for the possession of narcotics. Both men are from Murrell's Inlet.

Both suspects were inside a hotel room at the time of the bust.
