WALHALLA, SC -

A dispute between a man and woman led to their arrest after authorities say they found a meth lab in their home.

Oconee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Watt stated that Russell Howard Rogers, 24, of Salem, and Dorothy Louise Moody, 64, also of Salem, were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamines.

According to Watt, sheriff's deputies responded to a home on Russell Drive after receiving a report of a domestic dispute between Rogers and Moody. When they arrived, Watt said that deputies observed a "shake and bake" meth lab outside the home. Narcotics officers with the sheriff's office then responded to the home to clean up the lab.

During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that a second meth lab had been discarded in a wooded area off of Oconee Creek Road, near Walhalla. They discovered the meth lab at the location and disposed of it as well.

Watt stated that drugs were found in Rogers and Moody's possession at the time of the arrest. Both were booked into the Mooneye County Detention Center Tuesday night.
