A Berkeley County man was arrested Wednesday after police received a report of a man sitting outside a drug store and sending people inside to buy pseudoephedrine.
Curtis Charles Rogers, 36, of Heaven Drive is charged with manufacturing meth, according to a news release from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office.
It was the fourth time Rogers was arrested on meth-related charges in the last six months, the release said.
The Moncks Corner Police Department and the Sheriff’s Drug Enforcement Unit was called to a Walgreens drug store Wednesday night for a report of a man sitting in a car in the parking lot, sending other people inside to purchase medicine containing pseudoephedrine, a major component in the manufacture of meth, the release said.
Rogers was arrested and charged with manufacturing meth after several items used in the process were found in the vehicle, the release said.
On Oct. 10, 2012, the Sheriff’s Office arrested Rogers and charged him with manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine and two counts of exposing a child to meth.
On Feb. 19, he was arrested by the Sheriff’s Office and charged, along with two other men, with attempted manufacturing of meth and possession of meth.
Police and deputies later searched his house and uncovered what they allege to have been a meth lab, the release said. As a result Rogers was once again charged with attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.
Rogers was being held in the Hill-Finklea Detention Center on the latest charges, the release said.
Last year, the Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit uncovered and dismantled 28 meth labs in the county, the release said. So far this year, they’ve taken down 10 labs and expect to surpass last year’s numbers.
