Statesville Man Arrested on Felony Meth Charges

33-year-old William David Lambert of Damascus Road in Statesville has been arrested by Iredell County Narcotics Officers on felony counts of maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for the sale or use of a controlled substance and possession with intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver a schedule II controlled substance, along with a misdemeanor count of possession of a schedule VI controlled substance. He was arrested Thursday (February 29) when Officers executed a search warrant at Lambert’s residence, northwest of Statesville.

In January of this year, Narcotics Investigators received information regarding Lambert’s possible involvement in the distribution of crystal methamphetamine in the area. Investigators began conducting surveillance operations, which confirmed the information. Undercover Officers reportedly purchased crystal meth directly from Lambert at the residence. Based on that evidence, Investigators obtained a search warrant for the home.

The search led to the discovery of crystal meth, marijuana, two semi-automatic pistols, three long guns, and assorted ammunition. Lambert, who was in the residence at the time of the search, was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect was taken to the Iredell County Detention Center where bond was set at $7,500, secured. Lambert will appear in District Court on March 20.
