A person who is operating methamphetamine labs in his own home may find that he's not living at home too long into the future. There are many reasons why running such a dangerous operation out of your home will come to the attention of the police. That realization may have dawned on a North Carolina man who was recently accused of running meth labs in his Rowan County home, and arrested on multiple drug charges.
Recently police executed a search warrant at a house in an upscale neighborhood in Union County. A news organization subsequently reported the police had intercepted a high-grade hydroponic marijuana-growing operation. A 44-year-old man and his 39-year-old wife were arrested and charged with felony charges of possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, possession of marijuana, and maintaining a dwelling to store or sell a controlled substance. While police assert the marijuana seized had a street value of $62,000, they did not disclose the amount of claimed marijuana on which they based that estimate.
