Christy Ann Gable, 37, and Earnest Charles Lake, 52, both face charges of manufacturing methamphetamine. They were arrested Tuesday at the Executive Inn at 1107 Harbor Drive near West Columbia. NET officers said the two are accused of making and using meth in a room at the hotel.

Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said the officers dismantled and safely disposed of the equipment the two were using to make the illegal drug.

The NET team, which includes officers from the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, Batesburg-Leesville Police Department and Lexington Police Department, also made four arrests in a separate meth operation on Monday. The details on that bust can be found here.
