Wayne County Authorities Have Several Meth Lab Cases on Their Hands

Wayne County authorities have been dealing with several methamphetamine cases in the last few days and for now, there is no connection. Wednesday, the sheriff's department arrested 21-year-old Carlos Eduardo Torres of Mount Olive for possession with the intent to sell and deliver methamphetamine. In a second case the same day, authorities discovered a meth lab in an abandoned house just yards from the home of Torres.

At this point, no one has been charged involving the lab. In a third case, Department of Corrections officers working a clean up detail on Genoa Road discovered part of another meth lab hidden in a nearby ditch. Authorities are warning residence to call the sheriff's department immediately before handling anything suspicious due to the hazardous nature of meth making materials.
