UPDATE: Second Arrest In Wayne County Meth Lab

A second person is facing charges after a meth lab was found in a local neighborhood.

28-year-old John Brown of Goldsboro is in jail under a $200,000 bond.

An investigation by the Goldsboro/Wayne County Interagency Drug Task Force and the SBI found that Brown was buying pseudoephedrine, which is used to make methamphetamine. He's the second person arrested after authorities busted the meth lab on Kent Lane in Pikeville on Tuesday.

Earlier in the week, 41-year-old Marc Kearney was arrested after authorities got a tip that he was making and selling meth out of his Pikeville home.
