Three North Augusta residents have been charged after Aiken County authorities discovered an active meth lab, according to an incident report.

 After receiving an anonymous tip, authorities discovered the lab at 181 Hickory Nut Lodge Road in North Augusta. The lab was in plain view in a storage shed in front of the residence.

 Authorities seized approximately 1,500 grams of unfinished methamphetamine material with a potential street value of approximately $158,000, police said. One vehicle and two handguns were also seized.

 Kimberly Ann Hedman, 25, of 172 Adams Branch Road, and Charles Patrick Dunbar, 40, and Dillan Lawrence Lamar, 18, both of 181 Hickory Nut Lodge Road, were all charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, disposal of methamphetamine waste, trafficking methamphetamine products over 1,500 grams and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
