SUMMERVILLE, SC -

Summerville Police officers arrested two people Friday for allegedly possessing meth-making materials. 

Michael Cherry, 49 of Summerville and Victoria Kay Craver, 19 of Goose Creek are both facing Drug/Narcotics violation and Disposal of Methamphetamine Waste charges.

Just after midnight Friday, an officer pulled over a Ford Ranger pick-up truck on Boonehill Road right before Oakdale Drive in Summerville.  The officer explained to Craver, who was driving the vehicle, that she was pulled over for failure to come to a stop before entering the roadway and that her tag light was not working. 

According to the report while the officer conducted a warrant check on both Craver and Cherry, another officer on the scene noticed suspicious behavior.  The officer stated that Craver was "white knuckling" the steering wheel and never spoke to Cherry, maintaining a forward facing position.   

Officials say Craver's driver's license came back suspended for failure to pay for traffic tickets.  The officer says Craver argued about why her driver's license may have been suspended, saying she had paid for the tickets.  Craver told the officer that when she went to the DMV to obtain a new one, she couldn't afford it and got a photo id instead.  The officer told her that, that is not a reason for suspension.  The officer said that Craver was behaving in a manic behavior which the officer found to be suspicious.  

The officers asked for consent to search the truck including what's called a "free air sniff" of the vehicle performed by a K9.  While searching, the officers say they found several blister packs of Psuedoefedrine.  They also found small clear bags with white powdery residue, a propane camping burner, a propane can, a burn cream and liquid skin in the truck.  The officers say the products are used to make Methamphetamine.

Both Craver and Cherry were taken into custody and their truck was towed.
