BUIES CREEK, N.C. — Three men have pleaded guilty to charges associated with operating a methamphetamine lab in a vacant North Carolina university dormitory room.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Wednesday that U.S. Attorney George E.B. Holding said the lab was discovered last fall when Hoke County authorities responded to a fire alarm at Campbell University.

Holding says 29-year-old Steven Michael Cole of Siler City, 33-year-old Victor Wesley Evans Jr. of Benson and 26-year-old Wesley Craig Hickman of Dunn pleaded guilty to federal charges.
They will be sentenced in October and face prison sentences of 10 or more years and fines.

The City of Wilmington held its second public workshop Tuesday night about the future development of Wrightsville Avenue.

The current plan for Wrightsville Avenue was adopted in 1990, but over the last 19 years the road has undergone several changes. One hundred and forty-two citizens showed up for the first meeting, more than 60 attended last night.

“We’ll take as long as the community needs to develop the plan. After the plan is developed we’ll present it to the community to get feedback,” said Wilmington long range planner Christine Hughes. “Then we’ll present it to the planning commission who will make recommendations to the city council for adoption.”

The planning area for Wrightsville Avenue extends from South 17th Street to the eastern city limits at the base of the Wrightsville Beach drawbridge.

There will be another Wrightsville Avenue work session on Saturday, August 29th at Winter Park Baptist Church.
