Gaston woman arrested after being found in possession of meth
Gaston, SC - Lexington County deputies arrested a Gaston woman Tuesday and charged her with trafficking methamphetamine.
Gwenn Michelle Vandalen, 45, was arrested after deputies spoke with her regarding a property crime investigation.
“Investigators were looking for a suspect in an ongoing larceny case when they encountered Vandalen,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “She was in a camper on some property in the 600 block of Fallaw Rd.”
