  • Thursday, March 20, 2014



The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit arrested two suspects on methamphetamine manufacturing-related charges.

Whitney Burns Sapp, 33, and David Michael Barfield, 32, were charged on Feb. 24 with attempt to manufacture meth and two counts of unlawful conduct toward a child, according to a BCSO statement.

With a warrant to search their home, located in the Carnes Crossing mobile home park, agents found many components consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamine throughout the residence. Both suspects were present during the search, as well as their 11-month-old and two-year-old children.

A representative with the Department of Social Services was present and placed the children under the care of that agency.

Sapp and Barfield remain at the Hill-Finklea Detention with bonds set at $70,000 each. They were still incarcerated as of the second week of March.
