LINCOLN COUNTY, N.C. — A tip to the Narcotics Tip Line led Lincoln County investigators to a meth lab northwest of Lincolnton.

Following up on the tip, investigators did what they call a “walk and talk” at a residence in the 1900 block of River Road last week. Then, Thursday morning, investigators returned, following up on another tip, and report finding a burn pit and methamphetamine precursors.

Authorities say all the materials they found indicated a “one-pot” meth lab was recently operational at the residence.

Darrell Olroyd, 39, and his wife, Christina Olroyd, are both charged with one count each of manufacturing methamphetamine, conspiracy, possession of meth precursors and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation came in Thursday afternoon to assist with the clean up.

This is the second meth lab busted by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office in the last week.
