GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – A welfare check on a child Tuesday in Georgetown ended with the arrest of three people on allegations of operating a methamphetamine lab.

According to a press release from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, Angela Floyd, 40; Alex Floyd, 26; and Plummer Lambert, 36, were each charged with one count of disposal of waste from the production of methamphetamine and possession, manufacture and trafficking of methamphetamine and cocaine.

Law enforcement responded to 40 Lobo Loop in Georgetown in response to the welfare check. Over the course of the investigation, they allegedly found items consistent with the production of meth, the release stated.

Deputies removed the child and asked for assistance from the Fifteenth Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit, the Hazmat team from Georgetown County Fire and the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division.

Law enforcement reportedly confiscated plastic bottles, cooking pans and refuse consistent with the production of meth, the release stated.

The three suspects were taken to the Georgetown County Detention Center without incident.
