Two Arrested in Simpsonville Meth House Raid

Jody Adam Hudson and Timothy Lee Heil

Simpsonville Police arrested two men on meth-related charges Friday morning following a multi-week cooperative investigation with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.  Jody Hudson and Timothy Heil were apprehended at a house at 204 Faunawood Drive.

There were two young children in the home at the time of the arrest.

“A neighbor had called in about unusual behavior and several types of people driving up at night and staying a couple of minutes and leaving, so we do believe they were maybe selling drugs out of the house,” said Lt. Ralph Bobo.

The suspects and two children, ages 4 and 2, were removed from the home. All four had to be decontaminated due to the highly toxic chemicals inside.

The children were placed in the custody of the Department of Social Services.

Hudson and Heil are charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, misrepresentation on required log, and exposing a minor to methamphetamine.

Let’s hope child endangerment is added to the list of charges these men face.  Cooking meth is stupid and dangerous, but exposing children to the combustible chemicals used in the production of meth is just plain despicable.
