Additional charges for woman arrested after mobile meth lab found

Posted: Updated:

A woman was arrested and charged with making methamphetamine after investigators found a mobile meth lab during a traffic stop.

According to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office, deputies stopped a vehicle on Tuesday and found an active "one pot" shake and bake laboratory inside.

Lindy Christie Pistone, 36, was in the passenger seat of the vehicle.

Deputies say they found  numerous stolen IDs in Pistone's pocketbook, which they believe were being used by Pistone in a scheme to obtain pseudoephedrine. This is the primary ingredient in the methamphetamine manufacturing.

Pistone was charged with one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, three counts of possession of precursor chemicals used in manufacturing methamphetamine, and one court of possession of drug paraphernalia used to manufacture a controlled substance. 

Pistone was intially placed under a $75,000 secured bond.

After Rowan deputies and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) Clandestine Laboratory Response Team processed the laboratory on Wednesday, it was determined that the laboratory had a substantial quantity of methamphetamine in liquid form, totaling 150-millileters. 

Investigators also found additional finished methamphetamine. 

Pistone was charged with three counts of trafficking methamphetamine by possession, transportation and manufacturing, and one count of felonious possession of methamphetamine. 

An additional bond of $25,000 was added to the original bond, which now totals $100,000.      

According to the Sheriff's Office, the issue of identity theft will be thoroughly investigated and additional charges are possible.
