A possible suspect has been detained by the Sumter Police Department after hazardous drug materials believed used in a methamphetamine lab were found dumped at a local convenience store.

Maj. Alvin Holston said Sumter police detained an individual Sunday afternoon after the department received an anonymous tip about 6 a.m. of a person dumping possible methamphetamine supplies in a trash dumpster behind the Kangaroo Express on 2000 Wedgefield Road. Holston said members of the Sumter Police Department’s narcotics team along with a HAZMAT crew responded to the gas station, which was roped off for nearly four hours. The Sumter Fire Department was also asked to come on the scene to help clean up the dangerous chemicals, according to Holston.
