Effingham County Sheriff's deputies arrested four people Friday on methamphetamine charges following a domestic disturbance.

Deputies responded to a domestic disturbance report on Ray Fetzer Road. They found a group of what deputies termed uncooperative individuals around the residence.

Deputies initially arrested two people, Heidi Carter, 35, of Guyton, for disorderly conduct and Brittany Powell, 18, of Guyton, for obstruction of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. During the investigation, a male suspect, later identified as Joshua Harrison, 23 of Guyton, fled on foot from deputies.

Deputies found Harrison hiding underneath a trailer and he was taken into custody after he was subdued with a taser. Drug investigators were called in and they found a fourth person, identified as Barney Carter, 44, of Guyton, in the back yard burning a meth lab.

All four people have been charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and trafficking methamphetamine. They are being held in the Effingham County Jail.
