Rock Hill Meth Cookers Blow Up House with Children Inside
ROCK HILL — A Rock Hill woman is in jail after a meth lab exploded at her home Friday afternoon.
Sonya Sloan Burton, 37, of 546 Brush Creek Road is charged with third degree arson, unlawful neglect of a child, three counts of unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine in the presence of a minor, and other charges related to the possession and manufacturing of drugs, according to a website maintained by the York County Sheriff’s Office.
A York County Sheriff’s Office report says that three suspects, including two men who later fled the scene, were allegedly cooking methamphetamine in the bathroom when the explosion occurred. The explosion caused $20,000 in damage to the mobile home, the report states.
Burton had burns on her right arm and was transported to Piedmont Medical Center where she was treated and arrested upon release, the report says.
Four teenagers aged 18 and younger were at the residence. Two of the teens were identified as the suspect’s children.
About three dozen responders arrived on scene to extinguish the fire and gather evidence.
Hey but if we legalized drugs no one would blow up houses cooking meth, right?
