Four people are facing drug charges after an explosion at a motel in Wayne County.

Randy Johnson of Mount Olive and Tracey Grady of Mount Olive have been charged with one count of manufacturing methamphetamine each. Their bond is each set at $100,000.

Meanwhile, officials are looking for Joshua Summerlin of Mount Olive who is also wanted in connection with this incident.

    it is astounding the destruction and death these people smear all over the rest of society....without factoring in yet the actual explosions from manufacturing that stuff... Anyone want to second the motion to administer all product caught with these purveyors of death to them, on the spot? Or put differently: Arrest and execute.

    one has to wonder how much meth these people produced and sold in the 8 months transpired. To the PoPo, good work protecting us bosses from the blight that takes our labor down.

      The PoPo didn't do anything until the motel exploded. Also, why wouldn't they keep tabs on them after the hospital stay? What if they had killed someone that wasn't involved with what they were doing? The PoPo should have shut them down as soon as they got the tip. I bet they didn't even follow up on it. Also, I wish they would have been taken out in the explosion and saved us some money.
