Investigators from the sheriff’s office were joined by agents from the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and officers of the Albemarle Police Department to serve a probation violation warrant on Burnette.

After her arrest, the officers conducted a consent search of her vehicle where they found methamphetamine.

A search warrant for the residence was then obtained and the officers seized methamphetamine making materials found around the residence.

Burnette is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 3.
