Two people are in custody after a mobile meth lab shut down westbound lanes on I-26 in North Charleston Friday night.

North Charleston police initiated a traffic stop near the Aviation Avenue exit just before 8 p.m. Friday. Officers pulled over a white Nissan Frontier, finding an active one pot meth lab and items used for manufacturing methamphetamine.

Police say the meth lab prompted emergency crews to respond and close two lanes of the interstate for several hours. Several law enforcement agencies were called to the scene, including Haz Mat.

The driver, 40-year-old Frank Freeman, and the passenger have both been arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine. Police say the female passenger has been "deceptive about her identity." Police are working on identifying her.
