A Beaufort police officer was proactively patrolling the Pigeon Point boat landing just after 8:30 am this morning when he observed two suspicious persons in a vehicle in the parking lot. Upon approach, the officer observed materials consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamine in plain view inside the car.

The subjects, a white male and a white female, were detained and later arrested on unrelated charges by Beaufort police. Members of the Sheriff’s Office drug investigation section, who are certified in handling potentially hazardous clandestine lab materials, have responded and secured the scene.

A search warrant is being obtained for further investigation into the materials found. Access to the Pigeon Point landing is restricted to emergency personnel at this time and will remain closed until further notice. Members of the Sheriff’s Office Environmental Crimes Unit are patrolling the area to reroute any boat traffic.

 

Further details may be released as they become available.
