— A Wake County woman was being held Sunday under a half-million secured bond on charges that she ran a meth lab from her home.

Lisa Marie Parker, of 2733 Banks Road, was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, maintaining a dwelling place for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

An arrest warrant states that Wake County investigators found digital scales, aluminum foil with burn marks, straws and empty pens for inhaling smoke, and a respirator mask in Parker's home. The residence has a Raleigh postal code but lies in Wake County between Garner and Fuquay-Varina.

Parker made a first court appearance Friday and was next scheduled to appear in court Nov. 2, according to the warrants.
