A Florence man was charged after an active meth lab was discovered when deputies stopped a pickup truck for a traffic violation on Monday just outside the city of Darlington.
Darlington County Sheriff J. Wayne Byrd said that the traffic stop happened around 4 pm.
The sheriff posted a photo of a pickup truck pulled over by deputies at US 52 Bypass just north of SC 151.
