Lincoln County authorities say a tip from the public led them to arrest a man and charge him with running an indoor marijuana growing operation.

The Sheriff’s Office said Carlton John Williams, 30, of Dartwood Lane in Stanley, was arrested at his apartment Tuesday morning in the southeastern part of the county. The arrest came after deputies executed a search warrant at the residence.

Investigators allege they found an indoor hydroponic grow operation, including buckets, water pumps, grow lights, chemicals and nutrients. They also said they found two full-grown marijuana plants in a back bedroom.

Williams was charged with one felony count each of manufacturing a controlled substance and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance.

Deputies say tips about drug or other criminal activities can be left with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 704-736-8606 or 704-736-8422.
