New Charges Filed Against Meth Lab Suspects

More charges have been filed against two people arrested last year for allegedly operating a methamphetamine lab near Selma.

James Daniel Lancaster II, 31, of Narron Road, Selma and Taibtha Jo Godwin, 41, of Junior Road, Kenly were arrested in September 2017 by the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office after a meth lab was reportedly found at Lancaster’s home.

This week, sheriff’s narcotics investigators charged Lancaster and Godwin with two counts each of trafficking in methamphetamines in connection with the 2017 meth lab bust.

Godwin’s bail was set at $550,000.  Lancaster was held under a $400,000 bond.

The NC SBI responded to the scene last September to clean up the toxic meth lab components.
