AIKEN CTY, S.C.---A man and a woman were taken to the Aiken County Detention Center after a meth lab bust overnight at 785 Jackson Road in Jackson.
Deputies arrived to a strong smell of chemicals.
They saw Crystal Lariscey in the yard, but they say she went back inside to try and get rid of evidence. Deputies seized it and arrested her, along with Ronald Doyle, Jr. The two are charged with attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.
“We believe they were making the methamphetamine not only for his personal use, but for distribution,” said Sheriff Michael Hunt.
It took the sheriff's office, North Augusta Public Safety, and Aiken Public Safety approximately six hours to clean up the lab.
A six-year-old girl was in the home at the time, and is now in protective custody.
