NEW ALBANY — A third person has been charged in methamphetamine and heroin-related arrests from last Friday that resulted in the Department of Child Services taking his children.

Aaron Lawson, 27 New Albany, is charged with three felonies: possession of narcotics, a syringe and neglect of a dependent. He also faces two misdemeanors, possession of paraphernalia and visiting a common nuisance.

Police arrested Lawson, his wife, Teri Lawson and a friend who was staying with them, David Zeimer. According to a probable cause affidavit, Zeimer had the remnants of a meth lab in his closet and precursors to manufacture the drug. The items were found in an apartment on Cross Creek Boulevard.

Teri Lawson admitted to having heroin and syringes in the home, which they admitted to using two days prior to their arrest.

Aaron Lawson is incarcerated in the Floyd County Jail under a $100,000 court cash or surety bond. He was arrested at the same time as Teri Lawson and Zeimer, but was not charged until Tuesday.
