GREENVILLE, N.C. -

A meth lab in Seven Springs has been busted by the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division.

On July 17, 2013 deputies executed a search warrant on a house on Outlaw Bridge Road as part of an ongoing two week investigation. During the search of the residence, detectives discovered a "meth lab" behind the home.  Upon discovery of this clandestine lab, detectives immediately notified the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation Clandestine Lab Response Team to respond to the scene to assist with decontamination and clean up of the hazardous materials.  Inside the residence, narcotics detectives located and seized approximately 1-2 grams of methamphetamine, methamphetamine precursors, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

Deputies arrested three individuals in the home.  In addition, there were three juveniles found to be living at this residence.  The juveniles were turned over to the custody of the Lenoir County Department of Social Services.

In a press release, Sheriff Chris Hill stated, "It is a sad state of affairs when you have caregivers making meth around children.  Apparently these people care nothing for themselves or the children.  It amazes me the length addicts will go when under the spell of this dangerous narcotic"

Winfred Adam Hansley, 30, and Molly Annette Braxton, 22, both of Outlaw Bridge Road, Seven Springs were arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possessing methamphetamine and maintaining a dwelling for controlled substances – all felonies.  Hansley and Braxton were confined in the Lenoir County Sheriff's Detention Center under $60,000.00 secured bond.

Jamie Dee Albritton, 27, of Bland Howell Road in Kinston was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine.  Albritton was confined in the Lenoir County Sheriff's Detention Center under a $5,000.00 secured bond.
