A 28-year-old Columbia man was arrested Wednesday and charged with operating a Lexington County methamphetamine lab.

Jeffery Dale Summers II is charged with second-offense manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawfully disposing of waste from a meth lab, according to a press release from the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

Shortly after 4 a.m. Wednesday, deputies went to a Gaston home in order to arrest Summers on outstanding arrest warrants – on charges of criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, stalking and pointing and presenting a firearm at a person.

Summers was found in the living room, with a clear plastic bottle on the floor at his side. The bottle was a reaction vessel used to make meth and officers disposed of it. Officers also found other items in the home used to make meth.
