BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) – A Berkeley County man has been arrested four times in the last six months on manufacturing and attempted manufacture of methamphetamine charges, the sheriff's office said on Thursday. 

According to deputies, the latest arrest came Wednesday night when the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office Drug Enforcement Unit, in cooperation with the Moncks Corner Police Department, arrested 36-year-old Curtis Charles Rogers, of St. Stephen.

Records show that on Oct. 10, deputies arrested Rogers and charged him with manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine and two counts of exposing a child to meth.

He was then arrested again by the sheriff's office on Feb. 19 and charged with attempted manufacturing of meth and possession of meth. Two other men were arrested in that incident, deputies said.

On Wednesday night, the Moncks Corner Police Department responded to the Walgreens store in the town after getting a report of Rogers sitting in a car in the parking lot sending other people in to purchase medicine containing Pseudoephedrine, a major component in the manufacture of meth, deputies said.

He was arrested by the Moncks Corner Police Department and charged with manufacturing meth after several items used in the process were found in the vehicle, a report shows.

The Berkeley County Drug Enforcement Unit was asked by police to conduct a search of Rogers' home. There they uncovered a meth lab, deputies said. 

As a result Rogers was once again charged with attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.

He is being held at the Hill-Finklea Detention Center awaiting a hearing on the most recent charges.
