Tip leads police to discover 'one bottle meth lab' in Myrtle Beach apartment

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A "one bottle meth lab" was discovered in an apartment on South Ocean Boulevard.

Myrtle Beach police received a tip that led them to the Shady Rest apartments Saturday.

Officials did a knock-and-talk with the renters but were denied consent to search the room, according to the police report.

The renters were then evicted by the property manager who searched the room for damages and found a hidden bottle.

Myrtle Beach officers contacted drug enforcement units who confirmed the bottle appeared to a "one pot lab," according to the report.

According to police, a field test was done and the substance in the bottle tested positive for methamphetamine.

Samples were collected and sent to SLED for testing.
