YORK COUNTY, S.C. - A toddler tested positive for drugs after sheriff's deputies said three children were living in a meth lab.

The York County Sheriffs Office just busted its 19th meth lab this year, almost totaling the two previous years combined.

One of the three children they rescued from the meth lab is just 9 months old, and a 3-year-old tested positive for the drug. The third child was 2 years old.

Clover police got a tip that sent deputies to a house to check on the children.

They arrested their mother, Shealee Beth Henigar, and Stephanie Lee Summit for manufacturing meth and child endangerment.

Officers said the meth was being cooked in the same room with the children and this may have been going on for more than month.

Deputies are still searching for another suspect -- David Lee Ray.

Drug test results have not come back in yet for the 2-year-old and 9-month-old. All three children were placed in emergency protective custody with the Department of Social Services.
