Officials find two meth labs in west Lincoln County

A clean up-crew with the State Bureau of Investigation will help decontaminate a location after the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said it found two meth labs Friday afternoon.

Detectives went to a residence off N.C. 10 in the western part of the county to follow up on a criminal investigation, and officials said they saw several subjects near a wooded area.

As a detective approached the subjects, “a one-pot meth lab was thrown into the brush setting a grass fire,” the sheriff’s office said. North Brook fire fighters responded and extinguished the fire.

A second one-pot meth lab was found at the mobile home where the investigation occurred and a clean up crew will arrive Saturday, officials said.

A sheriff’s deputy will guard the site until then, according to the department, and an arrest is pending.
