NEWBERRY COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Three people were arrested after deputies discovered a meth lab in the Kinards section of Newberry County.

Investigators from the Newberry County Sheriff's Office served a search warrant at the residence located at 557 Smith Family Road Tuesday afternoon just after 3:00.

Sheriff Lee Foster said deputies found a meth lab, meth, various paraphernalia used in making and using meth and more than a $1000.00 in cash located in the residence and in a storage shed just behind the residence.

John William Dobbins, 50 and Timothy Lee Walsh, 52 of Kinards and Sandi Ann Wyatt, 26 of Clinton were arrested and charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine. According to Foster, this charge is Dobbins' third offense and a first offense for Walsh and Wyatt. All three are in custody awaiting bond hearings.

A clean-up crew contracted with the Drug Enforcement Agency responded to the scene and handled the clean up. There was no danger to other citizens in the area as the home is remote in its location, according to Foster.

Investigators said that they also found a four wheeler that had been stolen from Laurens County. The suspects may face additional charges related to the stolen four wheeler.

If you have any information about this case, please contact the Newberry County Sheriff's Office at (803) 321-2222 or www.newberrycountysheriff.com.

You can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CrimeSC, www.sccrimestoppers.com or text your tip to "TIPSC plus your message" to CRIMES (274637).
