Comments Off on Four arrested for possession of ‘ice’ methamphetamine

Wilmington Police Department Narcotics Enforcement agents arrested four people last week for possessing 225 grams of a form of methamphetamine known as “ice.”

Wilmington Police Department Spokeswoman Lucy Crockett said drug agents seized the “ice,” valued at $20,000-$25,000.

“The operation began when an investigator developed information about a suspect selling methamphetamine out of local hotels. Detectives located a suspect’s car in the parking lot of a hotel at 160 Van Campen Boulevard (Holiday Inn Express). When the suspect left the hotel and drove away, he was stopped for a traffic violation and subsequently arrested.



“When detectives conducted follow-up at the hotel room the suspect had just left, they found an additional quantity of methamphetamine he had just delivered. All three occupants of the room were arrested,” Crockett said.

Andy Joseph Clements, 30, of Wilmington, was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, maintaining a vehicle to store and sell and controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule II controlled substance. Clements posted a $100,000 bond and has been released from custody, according to Crockett.

Ryan Scott Ball, 29, of High Point, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Crockett said Ball had an outstanding fugitive warrant and he was being held without bond.

Christine Katherine Cianco, 30, of Greensboro, was charged with possession of methamphetamine.  Cianco had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear. She posted a $25,000 bond and was released from custody.

Leigh Ann Lockwood, 32, of Greensboro, was charged with trafficking methamphetamine. She posted a $25,000 bond and was released from custody.
