Three charged in Iredell meth bust

Iredell County sheriff’s investigators charged and arrested two men and a woman with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Brandon Dain Weaver, 27, Norman Johnson Oakley Jr., 49, and Christina Ann Dills 29, were in the Iredell County Detention Center without bond on Friday pending a court appearance,

Detectives said at least 40 grams of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of $10,000 were manufactured.

The arrests followed a search by detectives of a home on Sharon School Road in western Iredell County shared by Weaver and Oakley, Sheriff Phil Redmond said. Dills lives in the town of Catawba in neighboring Catawba County.

Detectives found items used to make methamphetamine in several trash bags and throughout the home and outbuildings, Redmond said.

“This type of methamphetamine lab is becoming more and more popular and is being seen by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office more frequently,” Redmond said in a news release Friday. “There are more out there, and with them being so mobile, the Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in catching the person and/or persons manufacturing and providing this poison to the citizens of Iredell County.”
