Two Charged In Mobile Meth Lab Discovery


A mobile meth lab was found at a driver license checking station early Friday morning, another indication that the drug continues to be a problem here in Eastern Carolina.

Lenoir County deputies had set up the check point on U.S. 70 at the Neuse River. When they pulled over a vehicle driven by Brian Malloy, they first saw the man had a suspended driver's license. They then asked to search the man's vehicle where they found heroin and the mobile lab that consisted of precursors for meth.

The 27-year-old Newport man was charged with possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine precursors and maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances. A passenger, 28-year-old Harriette Borden, also of Newport, was charged with possession of heroin and possession of methamphetamine precursors.

Both were jailed on bonds of $60,000 for Malloy and $55,000 for Borden.
