A jailed Berkeley County man will face additional charges after Berkeley County Sheriff’s Drug Enforcement Unit agents found components for making meth at the St. Stephen home where he lives with four children, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
Jon Edward Sumler, 34, of Eggleston Way, was being held at the Berkeley County jail when he was served warrants for additional charges of attempt to manufacture methamphetamine and four counts of exposing a child to methamphetamine, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dan Moon said.
The charges came about after investigators searched his home and found several items used to make meth, including Sudafed pill containers, Coleman fuel, coffee filters, salt and plastic jugs containing various liquids and solids, Moon said. There were four children at the home, Moon said.
According to court records, Sumler had been in jail on unrelated traffic charges filed by the Bonneau Police Department.
