Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On Friday March 25, 2016 deputies with the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office stopped a vehicle in Western Iredell County, and discovered what appeared to be an active mobile methamphetamine lab inside the car.
The area was sealed off and detectives with the Iredell County Narcotics Investigation Unit who are specially trained in how to handle methamphetamine labs responded to the scene.
