A Ferrum man faces up to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday in Franklin County Circuit Court to cooking methamphetamine.

Two additional charges against Terry Junior Thompson, 37, possession of ingredients used to make meth and possession of ammunition as a convicted felon, were dismissed as part of a plea agreement, according to prosecutor Robert Deatherage.

The offenses occurred on Nov. 24, 2013, at a residence on Rambling Rose Road in Ferrum, where Thompson was staying. A tip provided to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office led to Thompson's arrest.

When deputies arrived at the residence, the renter gave investigators permission to search the home, Deatherage said. Ingredients and equipment used to manufacture meth were found in the kitchen area and on the back porch of the house.

A sentencing hearing for Thompson is set for Aug. 21 at 2:30 p.m. in circuit court.
