A Lebanon woman who faced charges linked to multiple meth labs appeared in court Thursday.

Candas Boatwright, 32, was charged with promoting methamphetamine manufacture, initiating the manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of schedule II drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia for an incident Jan. 3 where Wilson County sheriff’s deputies discovered a meth lab while serving warrants at a Lebanon motel.

The meth lab, found at the Knight’s Inn, was not active. Two other suspects were also charged in the incident. 

Lebanon police previously charged Boatwright with possession of drug paraphernalia Dec. 13 after officers found a meth lab in a vehicle she was a passenger in during a routine traffic stop at the Burger King on N. Cumberland Street.

Boatwright was also charged with initiating the manufacture of methamphetamine and promoting methamphetamine manufacture for another incident March 11 where Lebanon police found another meth lab at the Travel Inn on Murfreesboro Road.

On Thursday, Judge David Durham appointed Boatwright an attorney. Her next court date will be a disposition hearing set for Sept. 12 at 8:30 a.m.
