Rico Nichols, 43, of 1354 Boiling Springs Road in Spartanburg, was taken back to the Spartanburg County jail on numerous drug charges Wednesday.

According to a Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office incident report, deputies arrived at the Sunset Inn at 1354 Boiling Springs Road at 3:40 p.m. Wednesday to search Nichols’ motel room with his consent.

While there, deputies found plastic tubing, glass jars, a glass pipe, a lithium battery, five Pseudoephedrine pills and an empty box of cold and sinus medicine, among other items, all in original packaging.

Deputies later determined Nichols is a known methamphetamine cook based on court hearings and past charges, and that after a court hearing on manufacturing charges, he purchased more Pseudoephedrine to manufacture more methamphetamine, the report states.

Nichols currently faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, two counts of possessing drugs near a school and two counts of possession of methamphetamine.
