HAMLET — Deputies have charged two Richmond County men with cooking meth after finding the drug in a plastic bottle during a Thursday traffic stop.

Charles Richard Goodwin, 29, of Airport Road, and Steven Alexander Knight, 26, of St. Stephens Church Road, were arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.

A Richmond County sheriff’s deputy stopped their car in Hamlet and discovered a “one-pot” cook inside the vehicle, Capt. Jay Childers said.

State Bureau of Investigation agents responded to dispose of the toxic material.

Goodwin and Knight were booked into the Richmond County Detention Center, each under a $100,000 secured bond.
