— Three Midlands residents were arrested Thursday, charged with operating a rolling meth lab in Lexington County.

According to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, the three were operating a methamphetamine lab in a Chevrolet Equinox SUV in a shopping center parking lot on Emanuel Church Road near West Columbia.

The two women and one man charged were: Shane Everette Culley, 24, of Lexington, on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and possession methamphetamine with intent to distribute; Allisha Grace Harr, 18, of Lexington, on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine; and Lauren Elizabeth Ragsdale, 21, of Columbia, on charges of manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine.

Deputies received information shortly before 8 p.m. Halloween night that the three were planning to sell meth from the SUV. Deputies found a mobile lab in the rear driver’s side compartment, according to a LCSD press release.

Culley was also found with two used needles, two cylinders that contained three bags of meth, one box with two bags of meth and one small bag of marijuana.
