Four people are in custody after Richland County deputies found what they believe was a meth lab operating out of an Irmo area home.

Once deputies arrived to the home, which is off of St. John's Road near Eleazer Road, they noticed a strong chemical odor coming from the garage so they searched the home. 

Inside the home, deputies found materials consistent with manufacturing methamphetamine, Wilson said.
