ROCKINGHAM — The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office has jailed three Rockingham residents on methamphetamine charges.
No one would answer the door Monday, when deputies responding to a report of suspicious drug activity went to a home on Billy Covington Road, the Sheriff’s Office reported Wednesday. As the deputies began to leave, they reportedly found on the porch an open bag of items used in to manufacture methamphetamine.
The deputies arrested Edward Carroll Hilton, 60; Thomas Wade Hilton, 54; and Vickie Lynn Davis, 62, on one felony charge each of manufacturing methamphetamine. The Sheriff’s Office listed Billy Covington Road as the residence for all three.
The three are in the Richmond County Jail in lieu of a $40,000 secure bond each. All are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 16.
Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety show that none of the three had been incarcerated previously, although Davis was convicted on a felony charge of uttering a forged document in April 1982, for which she received probation.
