A Rocky Mount man was arrested and charged with cooking methamphetamine Monday evening at a residence on Virgil Goode Highway.
Arthur Leroy Jacobs Jr., 46, was charged with manufacturing meth after walking out the front door of the residence with a plastic bottle, while being observed by Cpl. S.E. Richardson with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
The arrest is the result of a two-month investigation by the Narcotics Unit, according to Sgt. Lyle.
Information was relayed to Richardson by narcotics investigators, and when Richardson responded to the scene, Jacobs allegedly walked out the door with the plastic bottle in the process of cooking meth in his hand, Lyle said.
A Rocky Mount woman, Monica Hutson Doss, 49, was charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine in connection with the case.
The investigation remains active, so no further details are available.
