While officers were there investigating, they said they found a meth lab inside the home.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation (NC SBI) is helping with the investigation. The agency, along with Conover Police are still trying to figure out if anyone else was involved in the operation.

Investigators remained at the house until about 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
