IREDELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Three people were arrested on drug charges after a joint effort by the Warrant Squad, Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Team, Criminal Investigation Division and the Narcotics Division.

Deputies and Detectives of the Iredell County Sheriff's Office, with the assistance of the Iredell County Sheriff's Office Lab and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation arrested Christina Ann Dills, Brandon Dain Weaver, and Norman Johnson Oakley, Jr., for manufacturing methamphetamine.

The trio was performing what is referred to on the street as a "Shake-n-Bake" or "One Pot" method of producing methamphetamine.  Detectives estimated that the three had produced more than 40 grams of the drug.

The estimated street value of the methamphetamine would be $10,000.

Detectives conducted a search on a home on Sharon School Road in Statesville, where the three were staying. Detectives located the items used to make methamphetamine in several trash bags and throughout the residence and outbuildings, deputies said.

Once the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation arrived to conduct site safety, the Iredell County Sheriff's Office Lab, Narcotics Detectives and the State Bureau of Investigation processed the scene.

Dills, Weaver, and Oakley were arrested and placed under no bond at the Iredell County Detention Facility.

Deputies say this type of methamphetamine lab is becoming more and more popular and is being seen by the Sheriff's Office more frequently.

With the labs being so readily mobile, the Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in catching the person and/or persons manufacturing and providing this poison to the citizens of Iredell County.
