Three Rocky Mount residents have been indicted on charges involving the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Ricky Franklin Dillon, 55, is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of ingredients used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine.

Terry Shawn Hodges, 31, is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of ingredients used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine.

And Dorothy Vanessa Underwood, 34, is charged with possession of ingredients used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

The three individuals were indicted earlier this month, but the indictments were sealed until they could be arrested, according to Sgt. Lyle with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit.

The charges are the result of months of investigation by the narcotics unit, Lyle said. Six meth labs have been discovered in Franklin County in the past six months. And eight individuals, including Dillon, Hodges and Underwood, are currently facing charges in connection with those labs, he added.

Methamphetamine lab busts in the county doubled from six in 2012 to 14 in 2013, Lyle said.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. It is a determination by jurors that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.
