LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Lincoln County Sheriff's Office narcotics investigators busted an active meth lab Thursday afternoon at a residence in Denver Shores Mobile Home Park.

Investigators and deputies went to the residence on the 6400 block of Todd Lane shortly before 6 p.m. where they discovered an active one pot method meth lab with three people inside the residence, according to a news release from the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

One of the suspects, a female, was pouring meth precursors down a drain in the mobile home when officers went inside. She had to be decontaminated because of exposure to the methamphetamine precursors.  She was transported to the hospital where she was treated and released.

William Aidan Newell, 36, of Denver, was charged with one felony count each of Manufacturing a Controlled Substance Schedule II, Maintaining a Dwelling/Vehicle for a Controlled Substance and Possess/Distribute Meth Precursor.

Martin Victor Hudgens, 22, also of Denver, is charged with one felony count each of Manufacturing a Controlled Substance Schedule II and Possess/Distribute Meth Precursor. 

Heather Leann Newell, 37, of 6493 Todd Lane, Denver was charged with one felony count each Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possess/Distribute Meth Precursor, and Maintaining a Vehicle/Dwelling Place for a Controlled Substance.

The three suspects are being held in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center without bond pending a first appearance hearing on Friday in District Court.

It was the 19th meth lab found in Lincoln County this year far surpassing any previous years.

Denver Fire Department and Lincoln County EMS assisted in the incident.

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.
