McDowell Co., North Carolina Grand Jury Indicts Suspected Drug Trafficker

From The McDowell News by Richelle Bailey, February 25, 2012

A man accused of possessing methamphetamine and an arsenal of weapons will face his charges in McDowell County Superior Court.

On Jan. 23, a grand jury returned 132 true bills of indictment. A grand jury meets behind closed doors to consider if enough evidence is present for a case to be heard in Superior Court.

The panel indicted 53-year-old Calvin Eugene Lavender of Bat Cave Road in Old Fort on six counts each of possession with intent to sell and deliver methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, sale and delivery of methamphetamine and maintaining a place to keep a controlled substance and one count of trafficking methamphetamine.

Lavender was wanted by authorities on multiple drug charges.

Trooper Andy Waycaster of the N.C. Highway Patrol stopped Lavender’s 1993 Nissan pickup truck just off the interstate in Old Fort on Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Lt. Chris Taylor of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office said officers found a quantity of meth in the vehicle. That subsequently led authorities with the Sheriff’s Office, the Marion Police Department and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation to search Lavender’s house, where they seized more than an ounce of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and 20 to 25 long guns and handguns, Taylor stated.

The lieutenant said Lavender’s arrest was the result of a year-long investigation.
