After nearly seven months of construction, the Anderson-Oconee Regional 
Forensics Laboratory opened Thursday in the basement of the Anderson County 
Jail's County Home building. The lab will process all narcotics evidence 
seized in cases for Anderson and Oconee counties. The nearly $500,000 
project was paid for through state grants and is expected to process about 
1,000 to 1,200 drug cases a year.

Chemist Michael Miller will run the lab, which official hope will speed up 
the legal process for drug cases in the area.
