Suspect sought in meth bust

Narcotics Investigators are looking for a man they said had a meth lab inside his residence north of Lincolnton this month.
Deputies said they responded to a home on Fitzgerald Stowe Lane around 6 p.m. Thursday after being tipped off about potential drug possession at the property.
While there, officers said they talked to resident Charles Fitzgerald but did not yet have probable cause to search the home. The man also did not give investigators consent to do a search, they said.
Deputies left the residence and returned later that evening with a search warrant, locating a meth lab at the property, they said.
However, Fitzgerald was not at the home the second time investigators went to the house.
Fitzgerald remains at-large in the incident.
