LINCOLNTON, N.C. -- Narcotics investigators have arrested two people for manufacturing methamphetamine after discovering a "one-pot" meth lab on a property in Lincolnton.

Last Thursday, officers went to a home in the 100 block of Luther Scronce Road after receiving complaints of drug activity.

The narcotics investigators asked the occupants of the home for consent to search the property and were granted permission.

Behind the house, officials say they found a one-pot meth lab, what the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office describes as "possibly the most dangerous way of making meth ".

Joseph Keith Bradshaw, 27, and Teresa Gail Sells, 43, were both arrested and charged with one count each of felony manufacturing a controlled substance Schedule II.

The State Bureau of Investigation was called in to clean up the operation behind the home.
