Two Crouse residents were arrested on drug charges after Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies said they found a meth lab in a vehicle Sunday night.
Patrol deputies responded to the 4500 block of Crouse Road, after a homeowner reported finding drug paraphernalia. In a burn pile behind the house, deputies found needles, tubing and other items used to make methamphetamine.
Deputies secured the scene and went to a home in the 3500 block of Oakdale Lane in Crouse, after learning one of the suspects might be there.
Deputies came across a person in a small truck outside the home, searched the truck and found what appeared to be a one-pot meth lab, which was later verified as a lab by other investigators.
