Meth House Bust in Neighboring Oconee County
Response to a burn patient late Thursday led law enforcement to the suspected lab.
Oconee County law enforcement officials were at an East Haven Trail residence early Friday investigating a suspected methamphetamine lab, according to an email to media from Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Lee Weems.
About 11 p.m. Thursday, a helicopter landed at Malcom Bridge Elementary School to transport a burn patient, Weems said. Investigators later determined the man had likely been injured while cooking meth.
A hazardous materials team was among the units called to the East Haven Trail residence, Weems said.
