Two men are in custody after Effingham County Sheriff’s investigators located 35 “one pot” methamphetamine labs at a residence in south Effingham County on Thursday afternoon.

 Members of the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office Drug Suppression Unit followed up on information that led them to a residence on Corral Road in Bloomingdale. During the search, investigators located more than two dozen meth labs as well as other items used to manufacture methamphetamine.

This is an ongoing investigation and additional arrests are expected.
