“The girl had left her license, and I was just going to find them and return the license, and they led me to the sheriff’s office,” Townsend said.
According to Townsend, in the process of returning the license, he discovered that the woman was under an order for arrest from Watauga County. While speaking with the woman, Tim Winters’ K-9 officer with ACSO alerted Winters to the trunk of the car, where he found a mobile methamphetamine lab.
In response to the discovery of the lab, one of the three suspects fled the scene — Jesse Taylor Timbs, 29 — working his way around Newland for close to two hours before Casey Lee, Winters and a K-9 officer caught the fugitive near White Oak Creek.
According to Sheriff Kevin Frye, the suspect that fled has been charged with assault on an officer for kicking ACSO’s K-9 officer.
ACSO identified the two other suspects as Lance Daniel Nidiffer, 33, and Robyn Marie Willis, 31.
