Currituck Sheriff Deputies and NC State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) agents are investigating an alleged methamphetamine lab at a Currituck residence located at 120 Taylors Rd., in the community of Currituck.
The investigation began after a male showed up at Albemarle Hospital, Sunday (March 24) evening with burns to his body. The male, as yet identified, provided little information to staff at the hospital and refused to list his address.
Albemarle Hospital contacted the Currituck Sheriff’s Office at approximately 8 pm, notifying them of the suspicious circumstances surrounding the burn victim.
Sheriff Deputies later responded to the Taylors Road residence – a known address for the subject – where circumstances led Sheriff’s Office narcotics officers to obtain a search warrant.
Sheriff’s Deputies immediately secured the residence, with local fire department personnel responding to make sure that the residence was safe.
A search warrant was obtained Monday morning. SBI agents arrived during the day Monday to assist narcotics officers with the investigation.
Preliminary findings indicate that precursors of a methamphetamine lab were recovered from the scene, along with drug paraphernalia.
No other occupants of the home were reported to be injured.
The name of the injured male has been withheld, due to the ongoing investigation. A news release from the Sheriff’s Office indicated an arrest is pending.
