Wednesday three men arrested by narcotics investigators of the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office after the discovery of a meth lab in Lugoff.  Arrested were 42 year old Edward W. Conant, 35 year old Joseph H. Johnson and 34 year old Jammie  L. Frazier, all of Lugoff.  In May of last year and February of this year Kershaw County narcotics investigators arrested Edward Conant after they located a meth manufacturing operation in Lugoff.  Since then investigators had received numerous complaints about meth again being manufactured on Cricket  Hill Drive in Lugoff.  Wednesday investigators executed a search warrant at the Cricket Hill Drive location and found the lab actually in the process of manufacturing methamphetamine.  The lab was the seventh meth lab discovered in Kershaw County this year.  Last year deputies found three meth labs in Kershaw County.  Conant, Johnson and Frazier are all being charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.  Johnson and Conant are also being charged with possession of meth.  Additionally Johnson is being charged with simple possession of marijuana(2nd offense).  Deputies also seized two pistols during the raid.  All three men have previous arrests on various charges.
