Orangeburg County deputies have arrested two women in connection with a meth bust at a home and are looking for a woman accused of leaving her 2-year-old daughter at the home.

Officers were investigating complaints of drugs at a home on Binnicker Bridge Thursday when they discovered methamphetamines in the home, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.

Ravenell said officers found the personal belongings of Christy M. Kinsey, 41, in the home and took her into custody.

Kinsey has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, Ravenell said.

Fran Nicole Roberts, 29, was at the home when officers arrived. Ravenell said Roberts was arrested on an outstanding family court bench warrant.

“While Roberts was being booked into the detention center, officers located methamphetamine in a makeup case in her possession,” Ravenell said. “Roberts was also charged with possession of methamphetamine.”

Ravenell said Amanda Leigh Vosburg, 24, left her 2-year-old daughter in the custody of another resident who shares the Binnicker Bridge home with Kinsey and Roberts on August 2.

“Vosburg said she would return in four to five hours to pick up the child, but she never returned,” Ravenell said. “The caregiver tried the child’s relatives and another friend to take care of the child, but no one would take the toddler.”

The caregiver took the child to the Bamberg County Department of Social Services, according to Ravenell.

“The social worker and the Bamberg County Sheriff’s Office notified our investigators of the child being in their county,” Ravenell said. “The child has been placed in emergency protective custody, and Vosburg is wanted for neglect of a child.”
