Two Meth Labs Found And Secured In Eastern Alexander County

The Alexander County Sheriff's Office and NC State Bureau of Investigation have located and seized two active clandestine methamphetamine production labs in eastern Alexander County. One lab was located off Paul Payne Store RD with another found on White Plains Church RD near East Alexander Middle School. Sheriff Chris Bowman and officials from the Alexander County Schools made the decision to place East Alexander Middle School under a temporary soft lock down and keep all students inside the building while the lab was being rendered safe. The lock down was lifted approximately 20 minutes later once it was determined that the situation was safe. More information will be released as the active investigation develops.
