Wake deputies charge 4 with meth manufacturing, 2 of them with child abuse

From staff reportsSeptember 26, 2013 

— Wake sheriff's deputies arrested three men and a woman Wednesday at a house where officials charged they were manufacturing methamphetamine, and the woman and one of the men were charged with child abuse for having their 4-year-old son in the house.

All were charged with maintaining the two-story house at 500 Trunecek Circle as a place to keep or sell drugs, manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of meth with intent to sell or distribute it and possession of precursor materials for methamphetamine, sodium and the over-the-counter medicine pseudoephedrine.

Brandy Michelle Edwards, 25, and Christopher Shane Williams, 34, were charged with having their son, John Williams, in the house where they live, according to arrest warrants.

When deputies went to the house about 5 p.m., they also arrested Bruce Wayne Hatcher, 23, and Justin Haley Wagner, 25.

Arrest reports list Hatcher and Wagner as living at the house, though an arrest warrant stated that Hatcher had a Willow Spring address.

The Trunecek Circle house has a Raleigh address but is in unincorporated Wake County.

Hatcher, Wagner and Edwards were charged with felony conspiracy with Williams, and Hatcher was charged with failure to appear in court on an earlier misdemeanor charge and felony possession of 14 grams of marijuana.

All were being held in lieu of bail for court appearances Thursday afternoon.

Williams and Edwards had bails set at $152,000, Hatcher’s bail was $250,250, and Wagner’s bail was $150,000.
