GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Six people are behind bars at the Spartanburg County Detention Center Saturday on meth trafficking charges.

Authorities said Jeff Rhinehart, Tyler Cook, Melinda Rhyne, Susan Rhyne, Jerry Oliver and Robert Jackson were all in a mobile home in Greer when deputies executed a search warrant Friday morning.

Deputies said they found a meth lab inside that home, as well as one in the wooded area behind it and another by an abandoned house down the street.

Neighbors said they had been suspicious about the activity at 106 East Ave. in Greer for some time.

"All kinds of cars in and out, day and night with no tags," said one neighbor who wanted to keep his identity private. "It's scary, especially with my 9-year-old."

Others said the thought of dangerous chemicals lurking so close to their own homes is truly disturbing.

"I'm glad they busted them," said Tim Edwards. "Those chemicals effect people."

Authorities said they found materials to make an estimated 31 grams of meth.

Susan Rhyne and Oliver face additional charges of possession with intent to distribute meth and possession of a firearm during a violent crime. Deputies said there were also small children in the mobile residence at the time of the raid.
