2 meth labs found in Rock Hill, 5 charged

Five York County residents have been arrested on drug-related charges after agents discovered two meth labs this weekend, one of them in the bedroom of a pregnant Rock Hill woman.

Agents with the York County Multi-jurisdictional Drug Unit charged 37-year-old David Manning Henson Jr. of Rock Hill after discovering that he was manufacturing methamphetamines in a bedroom of a Museum Road residence Friday night, said Commander Marvin Brown.

Henson's girlfriend, 41-year-old Bobbie Jo Wulf, who is six months pregnant, was charged with exposing a child to manufacturing methamphetamine, Brown said.

Henson was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking methamphetamine, possession of a firearm and other drug charges, according to a York County Sheriff's Office report.

Officers with the drug unit and State Law Enforcement Division searched Henson's residence, 1580 Museum Road, late Friday and found that Henson was making a large quantity of meth, the report said.

The search turned up 333.5 grams of methamphetamine, 357.9 grams of marijuana, various lab equipment and chemicals used to make meth.

Officers seized two vehicles, seven guns and $300 cash. They also seized more than $800 and 4.2 grams of Percocet from a traffic stop related to Friday's search.

Curtis Reid Adkins, 29, of Rock Hill and Amber Nicole Fox, 17, of Fort Mill, each face charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Tracy Dian Klein, 40, of Rock Hill was charged with trafficking Percocet.

Another meth lab found Saturday at 360 Foxlair Court in Rock Hill was also tied to Henson, Brown said. That lab wasn't active, but officers found a place where chemicals used in making meth had been dumped, he said.

The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control was called to deal with the discarded chemicals. Henson also faces charges of disposal of waste from production of methamphetamine in connection with that lab.

Brown said these are the second and third meth labs agents have found in York County this week. The other lab was found during a traffic stop in York, he said. In the past couple of months, Brown said, drug agents have found six meth labs.

"It's mostly the same circle of people," Brown said. "We're just trying to get them all off the streets."
