Agents B. Williams, left, and C. Tanner of the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation clean up the remnants of a suspected one-pot cook of methamphetamine Thursday evening at the Piney Pointe Apartments off Wiregrass Road near Hamlet. The use of a plastic soda bottle like the one agents are seen examining is common in one-pot or “shake-and-bake” meth production. Richmond County ranked seventh among North Carolina’s 100 counties in meth busts last year. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office was still investigating Thursday evening.
