NEW INFO: Meth Lab Found At Highway 70 Motel

Two people are behind bars after a meth investigation stretched into two Eastern Carolina counties.

During the process deputies and police found a meth lab in a motel.

Charles and Stacy Williams are facing multiple charges from both Jones and Lenoir counties.

Deputies say Charles Williams was arrested after they say he sold meth to an undercover investigator in the Wyse Fork area of Jones County after a three month investigation.

That led lawmen to a motel on U.S. 70 in Kinston where they found Stacy Williams. At the West Parke Inn they found an inactive portable meth lab in the bathroom.

The SBI and the fire department were called in to help clean up that lab.

Deputies say the two face additional charges in both counties.

Previous Story

A portable meth lab was discovered in a Kinston motel early this morning.

Kinston police say they went to the West Parke Inn on Highway 70 at the request of Jones County deputies. They detained Stacey Williams on charges from Jones County and in the process found the inactive meth lab in the bathroom.

The SBI was contacted to assist in the cleanup. Police say they will release more information as it becomes available.

The motel says "we have it under control", but won't say if guests have been evacuated. There are other cars in the motel's parking lot.

    W/V Native, Know what you mean but it is here also. We spend alot of money advertizing the baaaaaaaad side of effects of pharmaseuticals ---- why not give someone a commercial on the ingrediant (S) in meth.>

    Folks, you can joke all you want but this stuff is horrifying. Meth has been the bane of everybody who lives in West Virginia or anybody else who lives in Appalachia. It's easy to make with products in your own home. If you don't do something about it now, expect a lot more meth labs and meth heads in eastern North Carolina.

    Why is there not a comment area for the insurance commissioner? Sorry to put it in this post.

    what scares me is the thought of doing nothing wrong, checking in to a place to sleep, and the moron next door, or under me, explodes the place. That would be quite distant from FUN.

    So, if it was inactive...does that mean, if you have the ingedients and hardware to make Meth, you can be charged with having a lab?

      If the hardware has been used to make meth in the past, yes. If the hardware is "clean" they'll have a hard time making it stick, but frankly, they can charge you with anything they can get a grand jury to believe.

        Thanks for that. Same as if they find a used crack pipe. Residue is enough to convict.

        Perchance "a" was intending to address the people of NORML- the silly people of the "national organization for the reform of marijuana laws", and trying to get info on whether they think meth should be legalized. Leave both illegal, and get seriously nasty to the infractors, I say.

          a:You cannot compare meth to cannibus.You really are uneducated on the subject arent you.I guess that explains your stance on legalization. ralphie: It will be legal,like it or not.
