Deputies discover remnants of Cherryville meth lab



Staff Writer


A western Lincoln County man is accused of formerly operating a meth lab at his residence, deputies said.

Narcotics investigators, assisted by North Carolina Probation and Parole officers, located remnants of a lab just after 1 p.m. Tuesday at 2125 Chapel Lane in Cherryville, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies charged resident Dusty Franklin Sisk, 31, with one felony count each of manufacturing a schedule II controlled substance and possession of a schedule II controlled substance along with one misdemeanor count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and probation violation.

Investigators were allowed to search the home without a warrant since the suspect is currently on probation, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Sisk remains in the county jail under a $100,000 secured bond.

Although State Bureau of Investigation officials aided narcotics investigators in cleaning up two additional meth labs this month, they were not called in to assist Tuesday’s effort.
