LANCASTER, SC (WBTV) -

Five people have been arrested in Lancaster County after investigators found a methamphetamine lab in the woods on Monday.

The lab was found off Starcliff Circle in Lancaster, according to the news release from the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.

The investigation began when narcotics agents at the Sheriff's Office received information regarding a suspicious purchase of pseudoephedrine which is a precursor of methamphetamine.  

A traffic stop on Starcliff Circle led to the discovery of a mason jar with a small amount of methamphetamine in it, according to the release.  

That traffic stop led to the discovery of a recently used methamphetamine lab in the wooded area nearby.  

A hazardous materials clean-up crew was contacted and responded to properly dispose of the lab.  

During the investigation the following suspects were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful disposal of methamphetamine production waste.  

All five suspects were charged at the Lancaster County Detention where they are awaiting bond.
