Two people have been arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine at 122 Red Cypress Drive.
On Dec. 13 just before 5 p.m. officers arrived at the above address in regard to contacting a subject with an active warrant for shoplifting, according to a Goose Creek Police Department incident report.
When police knocked on the door they asked the homeowner if the subjects were home or if they were hiding. Officers were given permission to look in the residence, according to the report.
A woman was found in an upstairs bedroom. When officers looked in the closet they found meth-making materials such as Drano, a coffee pot, coffee filters, butane, cooking flour and several plastic bottles and baggies, according to the report.
Taylor Sibil Arnold, 19, said she did not know what was going on, she told officers, who noted that she was sleeping 10 feet away from the closet.
Officers heard noises and opened a crawl space door to find Christopher Paul Elhoff, 20.
They were both arrested and charged with manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine, possession of less than one gram of meth or cocaine base, unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the presence of a minor child and possession of a weapon during violent crime, according to the report.
A 4-year-old child was present near one of the bedrooms, according to the report. Officers later learned that she is Elhoff’s daughter.
Bonds for Arnold and Elhoff were set at $66,000 each for the charges, according to the detention center website.
