Detectives of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division with the assistance of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation arrested three individuals for the manufacturing of methamphetamine in the Iredell County area.
Detectives arrested Chester Alan White and Billy Lee Colt Evans of Fox Run Drive Statesville, North Carolina.
Evans and White were performing what is referred to on the street as a “Shake-n-Bake” or “One Pot” method of producing methamphetamine. During these kinds of manufacturing one would normally render gram amounts of methamphetamine. Detectives in this case located two yet to be finished two liter bottles of liquid methamphetamine.
Detectives conducted a search of the residence on Fox Run Drive Statesville, North Carolina where Evans and White were staying. Detectives located the items used to make methamphetamine in the bedroom of the residence which had no power. “Meth cooks” will use book bags or purses or overnight bags to contain their mobile labs. These labs are so mobile they can do them in the woods, in a house, in a car, motel room, even in a bathroom at a restaurant.
Everyday household items were used during the production of this kind of “cook”. Things to look for would be drain cleaner, coffee filters, two liter bottles with powdery substances in the bottom, modified plastic bottle lids, clear tubing, book bags containing items listed above, blister packs of cold medicine, and lithium batteries, just to name a few.
The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation then applied for a search warrant for the residence on Fox Run Drive Statesville, North Carolina.
The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Lab processed the scene with the assistance of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office.
Evans and White were arrested and placed under a $250,000.00 secured bond at the Iredell County Detention Facility.
At the time that Detectives and the NCSBI Agents were going to apply for the search warrant, they located on the side of the road off of Country Life Drive a grocery bag containing trash and items discarded by the “meth cooks”. This is known as a “dump site”. This site was processed and removed by the NCSBI at the time it was found. These “dump sites” can be just as dangerous as an actual lab and the Sheriff’s Office asks the public to leave these alone and contact the Sheriff’s Office if you think you have one in your yard.
While dealing with the Methamphetamine Lab on Fox Run Drive, a second consent search was conducted at a residence on Deep Water Road in Statesville, which is right down the road from Fox Run Drive.
During this search, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and Iredell County Detectives located a second Methamphetamine Lab at this residence. Iredell Detectives applied for a search warrant for this residence.
This lab was processed by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Crime Lab with the assistance of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Office.
The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office arrested Webb Massey King 33, of Deep River Road Statesville, North Carolina.
King was placed into the Iredell County Detention Center under a $250,000.00 secured bond.
