CLINTON – Three people are accused of operating a methamphetamine lab at a mobile home in the Bonnetsville community, according to the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office.
The arrests were made after narcotics detectives and the State Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant Tuesday at the residence on the 300 block of Quail Run Lane, Cpl. Marcus Smith said.
The residence was in a mobile home park off North Peavine Road.
A haz-mat team was called in to secure the scene so investigators could search, Smith said.

They are charged with one count each of maintaining a drug house, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession and distribution of a precursor chemical, Smith said.
The Lewises are also charged with misdemeanor violations of child abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Elwin Glenn Jordan, 45, of the 600 block of Shipp Road in Clinton, tried to run from an officer, but was caught, Smith said.
Jordan was charged with possessing a methamphetamine precursor chemical, manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting an officer, Smith said.
Bail was set at $250,000 each.
