Irmo Police Department busts meth lab in Coatesworth Subdivision

Finsbury Drive operation discovered when department received report of “strange chemical smell”

Irmo, SC (James Bowers) – Officers from the Irmo Police discovered a meth lab in the Coatesworth subdivision on Sunday morning. Their dispatch received a call about an “odd chemical smell” coming from a home on Finsbury Road in the Coatesworth subdivision at around 11:00 a.m. yesterday. When IPD officers reached the residence, a search revealed materials used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. It was described by officers as a "shake and bake" operation.

The police requested the assistance of the Irmo Fire District. When they arrived, they performed an air quality check and subsequently determined the air around the residence to be safe. At that point, it was decided that neighboring residents could remain in their homes.

Irmo Police Department PIO Courtney Dennis said the search warrant was still being executed as of late Sunday afternoon. The Ledger will update the story as more details become available.
