Horry County Police are investigating a possible methamphetamine lab in Conway.
Officers were decked in white Hazmat suits Monday morning while entering a home on University Forest Drive, where a reported meth lab operation was found. Hazmat crews appeared to be removing plastic bags and bottles from the home.
Police say they were tipped off by a call of “suspicious activity” at the 612 University Forest Drive home. An investigation at the home started around 10 a.m. Police found the makings of a meth lab inside and what appeared to investigators to be a one-pot style operation, Capt. John Harrelson said at the scene.
The operation has been dismantled and “no explosive danger” remains for residents, according to Sgt. Thomas DelPercio.
Crime scene tape blocked the road for a few hours while police worked a few houses down. It appears that no neighbors were evacuated as residents were sitting on front porches of nearby homes.
