A Spartanburg (South Carolina) man, found with what police believe was a mobile meth lab, told officers he was ghost hunting in Oakwood Cemetery.
Marvin Willis, 36, of 7323 Lone Oak St., was charged by the Spartanburg Public Safety Department with manufacturing methamphetamine, according to an incident report.
The report states that an officer patrolling in the area of Oakwood and Avant streets near the cemetery about 11 p.m. noticed three people standing beside a pickup truck in the back of the graveyard. All three told the officer that they were in the cemetery hoping to see ghosts, the report states.
The officer noticed alcohol inside the truck and asked if he could search the pickup, and Willis said yes. During the search, the officer found several items used to make methamphetamine, according to the report.
Willis also consented to a search of his person, and the officer found a plastic container in Willis' pants, the report states. Willis said, “You got it, it's dope,” according to the report, and admitted that there was meth inside the container.
The officer found a blue, rock-like substance inside a plastic bottle in the truck bed, and Willis at first said it was salt, but then admitted that the bottle contained several ingredients used to make meth: ammonium nitrate, lye, pseudoephedrine and lighter fluid, the report states.
Willis remained at the Spartanburg County Detention Facility on Monday on a $15,000 bond.
