Police investigate possible meth lab in Conway

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Narcotics officers with the Horry County Police Department are investigating a possible meth lab in Conway.

On Tuesday, officers responded to an apartment in the 5000 block of Murray Johnson Road, in an unincorporated part of Horry County, according to a police incident report. The victim told police that the tenants that rent the apartment behind his residence were arrested, and one of the arrestee's mothers asked the victim's wife to gather the arrestee's belongings for her to pick up.

As the victim's wife was gathering belongings, she saw two bottles containing suspicious liquid, the report states. She put them outside and called police. The victim believed the substance was meth, because the tenants were arrested for warrants out of Greenwood County, SC for meth manufacturing, the report states.

The officer observed the bottles and called a sergeant out to the scene; the sergeant contacted Narcotics investigators, who took over the case.
