Two Lincoln County residents were charged Tuesday night with manufacturing methamphetamine and wanton endangerment of law enforcement officers when sheriff's deputies made an explosive discovery in their vehicle.
David Wayne Roberts, 43, of Kings Mountain, and Keesha Lynn Saylor, 32, of Stanford, were each arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, wanton endangerment and two counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer, according to jail records. Roberts also was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Sheriff Curt Folger said deputies responded around 9:30 p.m. to a call about a vehicle trespassing on a property in the area of Lee Banks Road, where they located a vehicle with Roberts and Saylor inside.
Deputies discovered warrants out for both people for failure to appear in court. The department K-9 was deployed and alerted on the vehicle, and a search of the vehicle turned up methamphetamine pre-cursors, according to a news release.
