The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office remains on the lookout for a Guyton man wanted on multiple drug-related charges.

Lee Allen Goldwire, 26, is wanted for trafficking methamphetamine, manufacturing meth, possession of meth, possession of tools for the commission of a crime and obstruction, according to ECSO Chief Investigator Sgt. Don White.

“He knows we’re looking for him,” White said.

Anyone with information on Goldwire’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office at (912) 754-3449.

Goldwire has been sought since he ran from a traffic stop on Dec. 17, according to White. Goldwire “took off” on foot, White said, when ECSO deputies approached a car after receiving a call of a suspicious vehicle around Central Boulevard in Guyton.

While Goldwire ran, two women who were in the car with him stayed put. Investigators identified them as Shayna Faye Lockard, 27, of Guyton and Rachel Lynn Flowers, 30, of Rincon.

“While speaking with Lockard, deputies noticed a clear plastic container that was smoking on the ground beside the vehicle that resembled what is commonly referred to as a ‘meth lab,’” White said.

Effingham County Drug Unit Commander Steve Edenfield processed and dismantled the methamphetamine lab at the scene, according to White. Lockard and Flowers were taken to the Effingham County Jail.

Lockard was charged with trafficking and manufacturing methamphetamine and is being held without bond. Flowers was charged with possession of meth and has been released on bond.
