A woman remains in custody without bond after being charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine precursors.

Wilkes Sheriff Chris Shew said Amanda Dawn Inscoe, 29,of Flintstone Hollow Road in Traphill was arrested at her home after Deputy Danny Jennings found ingredients for making meth there.

Shew said Ms. Inscoe gave Jennings permission to search the residence after he arrived about 6:30 p.m. Nov. 22. He said Jennings went to the home in response to information from the Wilkes Department of Social Services.

Shew said Jennings detected something with a chemical odor at the home, found empty Pseudoephedrine boxes and then found a backpack containing an HCL generator, tubes, coffee filters. Lithium batteries and other materials, all considered meth precursors.

Sheriff’s department investigators and State Bureau of Investigation agents returned the next day with a search warrant and found digital scales and other materials used in making meth, he said.

Chief Deputy Doug Cotton said that with the materials found at the residence on Flintstone Hollow Road, 10 to 12 meth labs have now been found and seized in Wilkes so far this year.

Cotton said that's significantly more than have been found in Wilkes in a single year in recent years. He attributed the increase to popularity of the "one pot" method of making meth.
