County police identify two arrested for North Wilmington meth lab

County police have released the names of two people accused of running a meth lab in the basement of their North Wilmington home.

Police say Wendy Wheeler and her boyfriend William Lewis face drug and firearm charges after detectives uncovered methamphetamines, pot, firearms and manufacturing materials in the basement of their home on Van Dyke Drive in the Edgewood Terrace community.

A search warrant was executed at the home Tuesday morning after months of investigation into possible sale and manufacturing of methamphetamines.

Both failed to post $104,500 secured bail. Wheeler is being held at Baylor Women's Correctional Institution while Lewis is being held at the Howard Young Correctional Institute.
