A St. George woman was charged with second-degree felony child endangerment on accusations that she used meth while pregnant.

In charges filed Monday, police wrote that the woman, 24, delivered the baby last week after 39 weeks of pregnancy.

“Being that her child was only 39 weeks gestational age, it was surmised that the use of methamphetamine caused [the woman] to go into labor,” police wrote.

The baby was delivered by emergency C-section due to medical problems.

The mother admitted to medical staff and police that she is addicted to methamphetamine and used the drug while pregnant, according to charges.

Police did not discuss the health of the baby. Blood was drawn from the mother and the baby and may be tested for drug levels.

A Dodge County couple who told police they were trying to escape from Fremont because the town was sinking into the earth pleaded guilty to meth charges Monday in Dodge County District Court.

Robert Radin, 26, and Rochelle Radin, 28, both of Fremont pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine, a Class IV felony.

Dodge County Attorney Oliver Glass told the court that around 3:45 a.m. March 15 a deputy with the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office on a routine patrol near Old Highway 275 and Morningside Road observed a purple Mustang parked for a period of time in the middle of a gas station parking lot. Glass said the deputy noticed there were two adults and two children in the vehicle when he went to check on the welfare of the occupants.

When the deputy made contact with the driver, later identified as Robert Radin, Radin told the deputy he was trying to get his family out of Fremont because it was going to sink into the earth.

When the deputy took Radin to a cruiser, his wife, Rochelle Radin gave authorities a metal dish containing meth. The couple later admitted they used meth between March 14 and 15.

A pre-sentence investigation was ordered in each of the defendants’ cases, and, pending their application to drug court, a sentencing hearing was scheduled for June 23.

— Two people were arrested on Easter Sunday after the deputies with the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous complaint about a possible meth lab near Cassatt.

Narcotics officers discovered a meth lab in an outbuilding adjacent to a home on West Drive, according to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews.


Sheriff Matthews said Debra Page Grooms, 44, and Lloyd Otis Sams, 40, who had just been evicted from the residence, were arrested when they returned during the search.

“In addition to the meth lab in the building, deputies discovered a mobile methamphetamine lab in their vehicle,” Sheriff Matthews said.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, offials from the cleanup company said the toxic waste produced from this operation may set a record for the largest waste product by weight of any meth lab in the state. Initial estimates for the cost of this single cleanup is between $10,000-$12,000.

“This is the sixth meth lab seized this year in Kershaw County,” Sheriff Matthews said. “Methamphetamine and methamphetamine manufacturing is a growing problem in our state and country. We will be relentless in addressing this crime before it gets out of control.”

Grooms and Sams, who have previously been arrested on narcotics violations, are being held at the Kershaw County Detention Center while awaiting a bond hearing.





Methamphetamine Lab Leaves Large Cleanup Bill

Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) – Deputies arrested two suspects after the discovery of a methamphetamine lab over the weekend.

Officers say they got a complaint call Sunday about a possible meth lab on West Drive near the town of Cassatt. When they arrived, officers say they found the lab off to the side of the home.

As they were investigating, officers say 44-year-old Debra Page Grooms and 40-year-old Lloyd Otis Sams came by the home, then tried to drive off. Officers arrested the two, and discovered that they’d been evicted from the home recently.

Investigators say they found a mobile meth lab in their car.

Sheriff Jim Matthews says the cleanup company hired to remove the lab says that the costs for this particular lab may set a record for the largest waste product by weight of any meth lab in the state. Matthews says it’s estimated it will cost between $10-12,000 to clean up the site.
