Five people were arrested in a meth lab investigation in Lexington County.

Sheriff James Metts says the Lexington County Multi-Agency Narcotics Enforcement Team found the lab operating out of a home on Willma Ann Drive near Lexington Friday after receiving a tip.

Eddie Lee Breazeale, 46: Casey Elizabeth Richards, 31; and Ricky Melvin Richards, Sr, 53, lived at the home. They were arrested and charged with various methamphetamine-related offenses. Investigators also charged Christie Ann Lassiter, 36 and Bradford Scott Price,33, on similar offenses.

All were taken to the Lexington County Detention Center, where they are being held on $15,000 bail each. Lassiter posted $15,000 bond Saturday and was released.

Deputies say they found several items in the home that were used to make meth. They say they also found some other items used to make meth that had been burned in a fire outside the house.
