SBI agents and Duplin County deputies are on the scene at 214 Kitty Noecker Road outside of Pink Hill after a month long investigation led to the bust.

Sheriff Wallace says the four adults who live there will be charged with possession of meth and meth precursors, manufacturing meth, and maintaining a dwelling for manufacturing meth.
