CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. – A 70-year-old Conover woman is behind bars, accused of trafficking meth out of her home in Newton.

The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office told Channel 9 that their Narcotics Task Force arrested Doris Jean Ingram on Thursday during a search of her house on Little Road in Newton.

The sheriff’s Office said that deputies found a “trafficking amount” of methamphetamine inside the house.

Information obtained during the investigation, which spanned over several months, led to officers obtaining and executing a search warrant on the home Thursday, according to authorities.

During the search, officers said they found more than 100 grams of meth – nearly four times the trafficking threshold.

Ingram was booked into the Catawba County Detention Facility and placed under a $60,000 secured bond.

She was charged with one count felony trafficking, one count felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver, and one count felony maintain vehicle/dwelling for a controlled substance.

The investigation is still ongoing and additional arrests may be forthcoming.
