LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC A woman was arrested Thursday after officers with the Lexington County Multi-Agency Enforcement Team found her sitting in a truck that was being used to manufacture meth.

Stefanie Renee Head, 30, of Gaston was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine from a truck parked in the 100 block of West Ballpark Road in Gaston.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said a deputy responded to a call about a suspicious truck about 1:50 p.m. Thursday. The deputy found Head sitting in the front passenger seat of the green Mazda truck when he arrived, Metts said.
