Blotter: Woman who refused to leave Salisbury home charged with meth possession

By Shavonne Potts


SALISBURY — A woman who refused to leave a Salisbury home was charged with drug possession after she was found with crystal methamphetamine hidden underneath her clothing.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Emily Ann Lambert, 37, whose address is listed as the streets of Salisbury, with felony possession of a controlled substance schedule II and second-degree trespassing.

The property owner called authorities because he said Lambert had previously been asked to leave. In that incident, a deputy told Lambert in September if she returned to the home she would be arrested, according to Rowan County Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford.

When a deputy arrived at the home Tuesday, Lambert was still at the home located in the 700 block of Joe Lentz Road. She was arrested and searched. The deputy found a silver container hidden in her bra. The container held a plastic bag of a crystal-like substance that field-tested for methamphetamine, Sifford said.

She was issued a $2,500 secured bond. It’s not clear what the connection between Lambert and the homeowner, Sifford said.
