Horry County police have released the names of two suspects who were arrested on drug charges after officers found them napping in a car at Pitch Landing Sunday morning.
Shawn David Anderson, 34, of Myrtle Beach was charged with manufacturing meth after police found a “one-pot style meth lab” next to him in the car.
Teresa Rachelle Brooks, 43, of Conway was charged with possessing heroin. Brooks and Anderson are both being held at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center in lieu of $7,500 bonds.
Police responded to the boat landing to investigate a report of “two subjects either passed out or sleeping in a blue Chrysler” shortly after 8 a.m., according to an incident report.

Police say Brooks was passed out behind the wheel as Anderson slumbered in the front passenger seat.
Officer Phillip Daniels peered through the windows for any signs of weapons or drug usage and noticed a clear bottle that appeared to have “liquid, foam and some type of dark-colored material inside,” according to the report. Daniels noted he suspected the bottle was being used to manufacture meth and called in more officers before waking Brooks and Anderson.
The bottle was resting between Anderson’s leg and the passenger door, according to the report.
Once the two were out of the car, officers noted they “felt strongly that the bottle was indeed being used in the manufacture of methamphetamine,” the report stated.
One-pot labs, also referred to as shake-and-bake labs, are commonly used to make meth with old soda or water bottles, according to police.
