Williamson  SPECIAL

Aiken authorities are asking for help in locating two people wanted for dealing methamphetamine out of an Aiken motel near a state university.

Christopher Lewis, 29, and Lisa Williamson, 30, were charged May 28 by the Aiken Department of Public Safety for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine within a ½ mile of University of South Carolina Aiken.

Since then, both suspects have been on the run, said Master Cpl. Jeremy Hembree, the spokesman for the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

“We do not have any information they have the left the area,” Hembree said. “The suspects are known to frequent hotels within the Aiken-Graniteville area.”

Hembree said investigators initially arrested Lewis on a charge of paraphernalia possession, after receiving a tip of a possible methamphetamine lab at the Econo Lodge on Richland Avenue. Lewis posted bail and was released, jail records show.

As the investigation unfolded, more weapons and drugs were found, Hembree said. Williamson was identified as a suspect and Lewis’ charges were upgraded to also include possession of a pistol by a convicted felon, possession of a stolen pistol, and possession of prescription drugs.

Lewis is described as 5feet 11 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. Williamson is listed as 5 feet tall and 100 pounds.

Anyone with information on the two can contact CrimeStoppers of the Midlands at 888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372). Callers will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
