A narcotics investigation shut down a meth lab in Rock Hill on Thursday night — making it the third meth lab bust in two weeks by officers with the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit.

The suspects are accused of running the Hopewell Road lab where “methamphetamine was being cooked,” according to a YCMDEU report.

Meth had been purchased at the home, the report states.

Around 5 p.m., Thursday, police searched the home and found meth, pills, digital scales and plastic baggies inside, the report states.

During the search, police arrested Steven Michael Kilyanek, 28, and Shannon Renee Gregory, 33, both of Rock Hill, the report states.

Police found the two trafficking “approximately 500 grams of methamphetamine,” according to the report.

Kilyanek and Gregory have been charged with possession of methamphetamine, Darvocet, Adderall, Hydrocodone and second offenses for manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine, according to the report.

Last week, the YCMDEU arrested two people in Rock Hill accused of possessing liquid meth in the trunk of a car in the Target parking lot.

A hazmat team removed about 180 grams of meth from the trunk of the car.

The YCMDEU busted another meth lab on Valentine’s Day on Fern Forest Court in Rock Hill.

Kilyanek and Gregory are being held at the York County Moss Justice Detention Center without bond as of Friday morning.
