A Rocky Mount man pleaded guilty last week in Franklin County Circuit Court to manufacturing methamphetamine and will serve one year and four months of a five-year prison sentence.

Ricky Franklin Dillon, 55, will also be on probation for four years and be of good behavior for eight years after serving his time.

Dillon was also sentenced Tuesday on two prior charges of possession of ingredients used to manufacture methamphetamine to which he pleaded guilty. On these two prior charges, Dillon was sentenced to four years on each of the charges. However, all eight years were suspended.

In addition to Dillon, two other Rocky Mount men are charged in the meth manufacturing case and are awaiting trial.

Richard Anthony Faircloth, 46, is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of ingredients used in the manufacture of meth.

Keith Ray Bailey, 48, is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possessing ingredients to manufacture meth and conspiracy to manufacture meth.

Faircloth was arrested when deputies executed a search warrant at his residence on Glen Meadow Drive in Rocky Mount, according to Sgt. Lyle with the Narcotics Unit.

Dillon and Bailey were arrested at a residence on Double Branch Road in Rocky Mount, Lyle said.

Deputies seized chemicals, equipment and a substance that was determined to be methamphetamine.
