Berkeley County deputies arrest 3 in 3 separate meth lab cases
Three people in Berkeley County were arrested Monday on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine after deputies found three separate meth labs, according to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office.
Richard Anthony Shultz, 41, of 2660 Mudville Road, Cross, was taken into custody after deputies with the County Drug Enforcement Unit found components and material consistent with the "one pot" or "shake and bake" method of meth production in a search of his residence, according to a statement by sheriff's office spokesman Dan Moon. Deputies also reported finding a bag containing a white powder substance that field tested positive for meth.
Shultz was charged with possession with intent to distribute and manufacture methamphetamine, according to Moon.
In a second case, Jennifer Atkinson, 31, was arrested after a search of her residence at 504 Broughton Road, Moncks Corner, turned up several items used to manufacture meth, Moon's statement said. Atkinson was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and exposing a child to methamphetamine.
In a third Drug Enforcement Unit action, deputies reported finding components consistent with a meth lab, along with a bag containing meth, in a search of a Bonneau-area residence.
William Clifford Casselman, 42, of 1056 Long Acre Dr., was arrested and charged with manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine and simple possession of marijuana, according to Moon's statement.
