LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Lincoln County Sheriff's Office narcotics investigators have arrested three people in two unrelated incidents, a report from the Sheriff's Office states.

The first two arrests came on May 9, after deputies received complaints about possible illegal drug activity at a home on Luther Scronce Road. Narcotics officers went to the residence in a "knock and talk" operation to speak to the occupants.

The occupants, later identified as Joseph Keith Bradshaw, 27, and Teresa Gail Sells, 43, gave the officers permission to search the home.

Deputies located a "One Pot" operation, used to make methamphetamine, stored behind the house.  The SBI was then called in to clean up the operation.

Bradshaw was arrested and charged with one felony count of manufacturing a controlled substance schedule II.  He was jailed under a $100,000 secured bond.

Sells was arrested and also charged with one felony count of manufacturing a controlled substance schedule II.  She was released on a $50,000 secured bond.

The "One-Pot," or "Shake and Bake Method," has been described as possibly the most dangerous way of making meth because the chemical reaction inside the container used in the process causes an extremely high amount of pressure to build up after the container is shaken, police said.

In an unrelated incident, on May 13, narcotics investigators and road patrol deputies went to a home on Diesel Drive to follow up on complaints about illegal drugs. The officers found 16 marijuana plants and an indoor alcohol still in a bathroom of the home. Narcotics officers seized the marijuana plants and ALE was called in to process the still operation, the report states.

Anthony Ray Perkins, 28, was arrested and charged with one felony count of manufacturing a controlled substance schedule VI.  He was released on a $30,000 secured bond.
