Colleton County deputies on Wednesday busted a meth lab at a Cottageville home while they were searching for a man wanted by Goose Creek police.
Goose Creek police asked the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team for help tracking down 20-year-old Kendle Scott Masterson, who was wanted on a first-degree burglary charge, Chief Deputy Ted Stanfield said.
Deputies located Masterson at a home on Augusta Highway where he was staying with Kenneth Dean Barr, 47, and Samantha W. Burdette, 43, Stanfield said.
While arresting Masterson, deputies found the lab, hypodermic needles, digital scales, chemicals, meth waste and about 3 grams of methamphetamine, Stanfield said. The Drug Enforcement Administration was notified and the meth lab was dismantled, he said.
Masterson, Barr and Burdette will each be charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and disposal of meth waste, Stanfield said. Masterson was turned over to Goose Creek police on Wednesday, he said.
