The Multi Area Narcotics Task force executed two search warrants in Paulding County last week, leading to the arrest of two individuals on drug charges.

In the morning of Wednesday, July 3, the Multi Area Narcotics Task Force conducted a search warrant at 310 S. Cherry St., Paulding, said Commander Max A. Nofziger.

Seized at the residence was over a 100 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine, suspected marijuana, several drug paraphernalia items and over $500 of U.S. currency.

Arrested at the scene was Angela Carol Lambert, age 39.

Later that afternoon, the task force conducted a search warrant at 201 S. First St., Oakwood. Seized at the residence was 24 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine, over 3 grams of suspected MDMA (ecstasy), suspected marijuana and several drug paraphernalia items.

Arrested at the scene was Charlie Darrel Egnor Jr., age 43.

Egnor and Lambert each have been charged with one count possession of drugs, a first-degree felony. Both were scheduled for arraignment Monday morning in Paulding County Court.

In both incidences, the Multi Area Narcotics Task Force will be working with the Paulding County Prosecutor, Joe Burkard, for consideration of additional felony drug charges.

Assisting the MAN Unit were the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office, Paulding County Dog Warden and Oakwood Police Department.
