According to DEU officials, agents began an investigation at 215 Briggs Avenue Tuesday morning that led to a search warrant for the residence. Agents returned to the residence just before 3 p.m. with the search warrant and discovered at least two active “one-pot” meth labs in a bedroom containing bunk beds and children’s clothing. Agents immediately contacted the Greenwood Fire Department’s HAZMAT team to make the scene safe.

According to officials, a search of the residence turned up nine of the one-pot labs, including the two discovered in the bedroom. Agents seized various ingredients used to manufacture methamphetamines and over 1,600 grams of methamphetamine byproduct.

Three people were arrested at the residence. David S. Mooney, 43, Karen Mooney, 39, and David F. Mooney, 66, have all been charged with trafficking methamphetamines and improper disposal of methamphetamine waste in connection with the incident.

DEU took down three meth labs on three consecutive days last week, seizing nearly 1,500 grams of methamphetamine and methamphetamine byproduct in those three raids.
