Sheriff’s Office Arrests Suspects in “Rolling” Meth Lab
Friday, August 17, 2012

Lancaster, SC – On Wednesday 08-15-2012 a rolling methamphetamine lab was discovered at Stevens Park in the Town of Kershaw. A deputy who was checking property in the park around 0700 am located a suspicious vehicle parked on the side of road. Upon investigation the vehicle was determined to be stolen from Berkeley County, SC. The Deputy located Mandy Elizabeth Richardson (W/F DOB: 11/17/1987 Address: 379 Blackwell Dr. Kershaw, SC) and Zachary Allen Kerr (W/M DOB: 03/25/1988 Address: 4648 Oakwood Ave. Charleston, SC) inside the vehicle. Kerr was determined to be wanted by the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office for an outstanding family court bench warrant. Upon further investigation the Deputy observed numerous items commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Drug Agents from the Sheriff Office responded and determined the vehicle to be a lab. Deputies also located a quantity of methamphetamine and marijuana in Richardson’s pocketbook. Both Richardson and Kerr were arrested and will be charged with Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, and Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine within the Proximity of a Park. Richardson will also face charges of Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana and Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana within the Proximity of a Park. Both subjects are incarcerated at the Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.

The State Law Enforcement Division was contacted and sent a team of hazardous material experts to clean up the lab. A portion of the Lancaster County STAR team was activated to respond to the Detention Center to decontaminate the deputies, the suspects, and the patrol vehicles used to transport the suspects to jail.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
