A man and a woman were arrested Monday for manufacturing methamphetamine at a Newton home, according to the Catawba County Sheriff's Department.

The arrest came after an anonymous tip led deputies to a home on Carmel Ridge Drive in Newton. While executing a search warrant at the residence, investigators found several "one pot" methamphetamine cook bottles in the kitchen, the report states.

Joyce Brown Crouse, 37, and Franklin William Chamberlin, 32, were both arrested and placed in the Catawba County Jail with no bond.

They were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession and distribution of methamphetamine precursors.
