Lincoln County sheriff’s investigators arrested two men and a woman on meth charges Wednesday night at a home in the 2000 block of Bill Lynch Road, off Soutfork and Laboratory roads near Lincolnton.
When investigators arrived at the home, a man tried to hide methamphetamine under a couch in the living room, sheriff’s narcotics Lt. Jon Propst said Thursday.
Officers found more methamphetamine in the home, along with small plastic baggies and digital scales containing meth residue, Propst said.
Two people pulled up to the home in a car, were approached by narcotics detectives and gave their consent to have the car searched. Officers found opiate-based prescription pills, more methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, plastic baggies similar to those in the home and cash.
