A Rocky Mount woman faces up to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty Monday in Franklin County Circuit Court to cooking methamphetamine.
Two additional drug charges against Doreen Marie Shively, 34, were dismissed through a plea agreement, according to prosecutor Robert Deatherage.
The offenses occurred on Sept. 18, 2013, at a residence in a mobile park on Route 220 North, Deatherage said.
Following up on a tip, investigators with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office visited the mobile home, where Shively answered the door and gave them permission to search the residence, Deatherage said.
Shively showed the investigators where several ingredients were kept inside the home, Deatherage said. The ingredients included a container of drain cleaner, an open cold pack, a jar that is used for gassing meth oil that had a white residue in it and Sudafed tablets.
Investigators also found Alprazolam, a generic form of Xanax that is used for anxiety disorders, Deatherage said. Shively did not have a legal prescription for the sedative drug.
The two charges that were dismissed were possession of ingredients to manufacture meth and distribution of Alprazolam.
A sentencing hearing for Shively is set for Oct.16 at 4 p.m. in circuit court.
