Authorities bust meth lab; China Grove couple charged

CHINA GROVE — Two people were charged after authorities say they were cooking drugs in their home.
Nicholas Cody Baker, 26, and his girlfriend, Sharon Lewis Bruce, 42, were cooking methamphetamine, investigators say.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit and the Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Unit, assisted by the SBI and the Salisbury Police, served a search warrant at a home in the 100 block of Beth Drive, off Old Beatty Ford Road.
They found the occupants had two one-pot meth labs in a bathroom, a press release said.
Baker was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, maintaining a dwelling, possession of precursor chemicals, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine.
Bruce was charged with maintaining a dwelling, possession of precursor chemicals, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine.
The couple were each placed under a $15,000 secured bond.
Baker was out on bond from a January arrest in Iredell County for the sale of methamphetamine. Bruce has a previous federal meth conviction in Virginia.
Assisting in the site safety were the Bostian Heights Fire Department and Rowan County EMS.
