Responding to a tip about a stolen tractor trailer and drug use, Lexington County authorities raided a Swansea home on Bud Wise Road on Friday, seized what they said was a methamphetamine lab and arrested three women, Sheriff James Metts said in a news release.
The meth lab was set up in a stolen tractor trailer that was found parked on the property, Metts said.
Danielle Marie Smoak, 35, who lived there, and Misty Dawn Rollison, 27, of St. George, SC, were charged with operating a methamphetamine lab. Ruby Letitia Williamson, 41, who also lived at the Bud Wise Road house, was charged with receiving stolen goods and possessing methamphetamine.
All three women were being held at the Lexington County Detention Center Saturday night awaiting a bond hearing.
