Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office
Lenoir County Sheriff’s deputies and narcotics investigators are on the scene of what appears to be a meth making operation. The Sheriff’s Office began an investigation at the home of 2879 Tyndall Williams Road, Deep Run at about 8:15 a.m. today, after receiving a tip that meth production had been occurring in the home. Investigators are in the process of executing a search warrant of the home and have already seen significant evidence on the exterior of the home that meth was being produced or had been produced very recently. The NC SBI has been called to the home to take possession of any and all meth making materials and to destroy those products.
The Sheriff’s Office is now looking for a suspect and resident of the home:
Donald R. Page III, white male, age 35
2879 Tyndall Williams Drive
Deep Run, NC
Sheriff Chris Hill stated, “Meth production has been a growing problem in eastern North Carolina because it is easy to make, the products are readily available and cheap to buy, and the finished product is highly addictive. For some home grown chemists meth production can be “self-correcting” in that they may make a mistake and cause an explosion. This has occurred in Lenoir County on several occasions over the past few years. “
