GREENWOOD, SC – Four people have been charged after members of the Greenwood Drug Enforcement Unit discovered the makings of a meth lab at a residence on Monday.
According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy arrived at 3014 County Farm Road lot 3 to speak with the resident about people living there that were not on the lease. When the deputy arrived at the residence he spoke with Connie Michelle Tullis, 44, who reportedly told the deputy that her nephew, Wesley Keith Trotter, 31, was living with her and that they would send her to jail. When the deputy asked why she would go to jail, Tullis reportedly told the deputy that there were drugs in the home.
According to the report, Tullis signed a consent to search form. When deputies entered the residence, Trotter and another female, identified as Cierra Leann Neeley, 24, began threatening Tullis. The report states that deputies discovered ingredients used in the manufacturing of methamphetamines along with used syringes in two separate trash cans. Deputies also located a fourth subject, identified as Carl Marcus Madden, 38, hiding under a bed.
While searching the four subjects, deputies located five Clonazepam pills on Neeley and four Clonazepam pills on Madden.
All four subjects have been charged with manufacturing methamphetamines and improper disposal of methamphetamine waste. Neeley and Madden were also charged with possession of a schedule IV controlled substance.
