A Rocky Mount man faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty last week in Franklin County Circuit Court to manufacturing methamphetamine.
Through a plea agreement, three other charges against David Glen Duncan, 32, were dismissed, according to prosecutor Cooper Brown.
Those charges were possession of ingredients to make meth, conspiracy to make meth and possession of meth.
A tip led investigators to an apartment on Tripple Creek Road, where Duncan was illegally manufacturing the stimulant, Brown said.
While the maximum sentence for manufacturing meth is 40 years in prison, Brown said the sentence for Duncan was capped at five years as part of the plea agreement.
A sentencing hearing for Duncan is set for Oct. 23 at 3:45 in circuit court.
