A man and woman were manufacturing methamphetamine at their mobile home in Wake County, according to charges filed Tuesday by Wake County narcotics investigators.
Never miss a local story.
Christin Leigh Hompesch, 28, and Ellis Christ Hegele, 37, were arrested at the trailer on Buttonquail Drive in a mobile-home park off Ten Ten Road between Holly Springs and Garner.
Each of the two was charged with manufacturing meth and having materials used in the process, including the cold medicine pseudoephedrine. They were not charged with having meth itself on Tuesday.
They also were accused of maintaining a residence used by people using drugs, according to the charges, and of conspiring with each other and a third person to make the drug.
The third person was being sought Wednesday, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office said.
A magistrate set bail for Hompesch and Hegele at $400,000 each, and they were held pending first court appearances.
