A man was arrested in Fort Mill on Thursday night after drug agents discovered heroin and methamphetamine in the home he was renting, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.
Bejamin Tennant, 38, is charged with manufacturing meth and possession of heroin with intent to distribute.
The York County Mutitjurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit received a tip about a meth lab at the Sleepy Hollow Road house, commander Marvin Brown said.
While at the home, drug agents, with help from York County Emergency Management and the Fort Mill Fire Department, found the lab was inactive, but Tennant arrived with nine bindles of heroin in his possession.
The discovery of this meth lab brings the total in York County up to 20 in 2013 – double the number discovered in each of 2011 and 2012, Brown said.
