3 children removed from home after meth lab found

Three children have been removed from a home where three adults are accused of manufacturing a meth lab

A child tested positive for methamphetamine Tuesday after drug agents removed three children from a home where three adults are accused of manufacturing a meth lab in Clover — the 19th lab uncovered in York County this year.

Drug agents, Sheriff’s deputies, Clover Police and emergency management officials were “conducting a narcotics investigation” at 822 Deep Hollow Court when they found Sealee Henigar, 24, Stephanie Summitt, 21, and David Lee Ray, 29, making meth while three children — ages 3, 2 and 9 months old — were nearby, according to a report from the county’s multijurisdictional drug enforcement unit. All three have been charged with three counts of manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of a child.

Henigar and Summitt were arrested. Warrants have been issued for Ray.

Agents seized .1 grams of meth, two meth pipes, marijuana seeds, a notepad, cell phones, flash drivers and an unknown white powder from the home, the report states.

The three children underwent the decontamination process, said Lt. Mike Ligon, drug unit commander for York and Clover.

The York County office of the Department of Social Services took custody of the children and took them to Piedmont Medical Center to be tested for exposure to meth, the report states. One of the children tested positive, Ligon said.
