Deputies in Spartanburg County said a woman faces additional charges after deputies discovered a vacant methamphetamine lab in a home directly across the street from an elementary school while serving a warrant Friday.

Deputies along with a U.S. Marshal were attempting to locate and arrest Dawn Tate after getting word that she had been staying in a home on Winco Avenue, which deputies said sits across from Lone Oak Elementary and less than half a mile away from the University of South Carolina Upstate.

While no one was at home at the time, deputies said they found several items used to make methamphetamine in a trash can outside the house.

Inside the home, deputies said they discovered numerous other items used in methamphetamine production and items containing methamphetamine residue and waste. Items included multiple packages of drugs containing pseudoephedrine, syringes, funnels, jars, partially melted bottles, containers of acids and other chemicals. Deputies said the items would have yielded more than 10 grams of meth.

Deputies said additional arrest warrants were signed, charging Tate with trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking within a half-mile of a school and illegal disposal of methamphetamine waste.

Deputies said they also found pay stubs and tickets made out to Jack Allen Richey inside the home. Richey is listed as a second suspect in the incident report.
