Domestic Violence Call Yields Meth, Child Abuse Charges

Onslow County Deputies say a domestic violence call yielded two arrests Friday.

While following up on the routine call, a deputy says he spotted what appeared to be a methamphetamine lab in plain view.

For safety reasons, the deputy removed everyone, including a 6 month old infant, from the residence. The Narcotics Unit, SBI and EMS personnel were called in for assistance.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says an active "One Pot" Meth Lab and several precursor chemicals were located inside the residence, on Gurganus Road in Maple HiIl.

We're told the infant child was transported to Onslow Memorial Hospital for decontamination and a physical examination.

32-year-old KD Dixon and 29-year-old Yvonda Jean Lewis were transported to the Onslow County Sheriff's Office for charges and processing.

Deputies say Dixon and Lewis, both of Maple Hill, have each been charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell or distribute a Schedule II controlled substance, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor child abuse by exposure to dangerous chemicals.

Both Dixon and Lewis are being held on a $275,000 secured bond.
