A meth lab was discovered at a Rock Hill home on Tuesday, seven months after lab was found at the same residence. This marks the 13th lab officers have found in York County this year.

The York County Multijursidictional Drug Enforcement Unit went to the house on Lesslie Dale Road on Tuesday afternoon after “receiving complaints of persons manufacturing methamphetamine at the residence,” according to Marvin Brown of the drug unit.

Agents found “precursors” for manufacturing meth, along with bottles, tubes and 295 grams of liquid meth.

When officers found the earlier lab on Dec. 30, 2013, they arrested Richard Dean Bailey, Jr. This time, Brown said, they arrested Bailey’s father, Richard Dean Bailey, 56, Benny Sullivan, 39, and Kaeley Jenkins, 18.

Jenkins’ son, 1, was in the house. He was taken into custody by the Department of Social Services.

Bailey and Sullivan were charged with manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine, Brown said. Jenkins was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child and exposing a child to methamphetamine.
