2 arrested on meth trafficking charges

A Lincoln County woman and a Charlotte man were arrested Wednesday in Catawba County on methamphetamine trafficking charges.

The arrests of Autumn Dawn Buckland, 34, of Iron Station, and Terrell Jerome Fisher II, 35, followed a three-month investigation by Catawba County sheriff’s investigators and Hickory police.

Buckland was arrested in the parking lot of the Walmart in Conover after investigators saw her conduct a meth transaction, sheriff’s Lt. Jason Reid said. She was charged with seven drug counts and jailed on $101,500 bail.

Police later arrested Fisher at the Quality Inn on Lenoir-Rhyne Boulevard in Hickory and charged him with conspiracy to traffic meth. He was jailed on a $16,000 bail.
