Loud music complaint leads to meth lab discovery

SOUTH CONGAREE, SC (WIS) -

A complaint about loud music leads South Congaree Police to a meth lab inside a parked van.

Police were called to a garage in the 1000 block of West Main Street at about 5 a.m. Sunday for a complaint about loud music. An officer noticed what appeared to be items used to make meth in a van parked next to the garage.

According to the incident report, the officer said Guy Douglas Chaney, 47, and Clyde William Ostranger, Jr., 36, were acting suspiciously while police were at the garage, which had been converted into an apartment.

Officers went inside the apartment and say they found Brian Allen Kemmerlin, 36; Timothy Allen Reason, 32; Amanda Jean Hanners, 33; Rosa Louis Jackson, 35; and Freddie Lee Chaney, 63, hiding inside.

Officers called the Lexington County Sheriff's Department to assist with the investigation and confirmed that the suspected meth lab in the van was actively cooking the drug.  After obtaining a search warrant, investigators found meth and drug-related paraphernalia in the apartment, including "a small amount of green leafy substance," according to the incident report. Investigators say they also found an AR15 assault rifle.

All were taken to the Lexington County Detention Center on charges of improper disposal of methamphetamine, manufacturing meth and criminal conspiracy.
