Pair Indicted For Operating Meth Lab

A Johnston County Grand Jury has indicted two people for allegedly operating a meth lab near Selma earlier this year.

On September 14th, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division reportedly found the meth lab at the home of James Daniel Lancaster II, 31, on Narron Road, off Old Beulah Road outside of Selma.

Lancaster and a second person, Tabitha Jo Godwin, 41, of Junior Road, Kenly were arrested and charged at the scene that day.

Earlier this month, a Johnston County Grand Jury in Smithfield returned a True Bill of Indictment against Lancaster and Godwin.

Lancaster was named in a four count indictment on charges that included: manufacturing methamphetamines, maintaining a dwelling for using, keeping or selling controlled substances, conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamines, and  possession or distribution of immediate precursor chemicals.

Godwin was named in a four count indictment on charges that included: manufacturing methamphetamines, maintaining a dwelling for using, keeping or selling controlled substances, conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamines, and  possession or distribution of immediate precursor chemicals.

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