DCSO shuts down meth lab

  • Thursday, July 25, 2013



On July 22, 2013 Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to 108 Marie Lane in Summerville in the Woodoak Mobile Home Park in reference to neighbors smelling a chemical odor from the residence, according to Chief Deputy Sam Richardson.
Deputies arrived on scene and also smelled the odor. After a failed attempt to make contact with the owner of the mobile home, the Metro Narcotics Unit was notified.
Detectives with the Narcotics Unit responded to the incident location, said Richardson.
The Sergeant of the Metro Unit could smell a strong ammonia odor, which is associated with “One-Pot” methamphetamine labs.
Detectives spoke to a female at the residence who said she was not the owner. While at the mobile home, Amy Burgio, the owner of the mobile home arrived. After talking with Detectives, Burgio consented to a search of her mobile home.
During the voluntary consent search Detectives located parts of the methamphetamine lab. The mobile home was secured and a search warrant was obtained for the mobile home to conduct the rest of the search, Richardson said.
During the search Clandestine Laboratory Technicians from the Metro Narcotics Unit and the DEA Task Force seized two types of methamphetamine labs, a Red Phosphorus method methamphetamine lab and a One- Pot method methamphetamine lab.
Arrested on scene was Amy Burgio of 108 Marie Lane for manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine and Peter Ward of Sellars Circle for possession of marijuana.
