A man from Willard will spend at least 3-5 years in prison after pleading guilty in Pender County Superior Court Tuesday to manufacturing meth.
The Pender County Sheriff's Office began an investigation into Jason Hall, 43, in September 2013 when they received information that Hall was manufacturing meth.
Duplin County authorities provided video evidence that Hall and another person purchased items used to produce meth on four different occasions between March and August 2013.
Pender County detectives searched Hall's residence on Lake Road in Willard in February.
Authorities found three loaded guns and 40 pseudoephedrine pills inside Hall's home. Police searched another building on Hall's property and found evidence of a meth lab.
Authorities confiscated lithium batteries, a pill grinder, camp fuel, coffee filters, several plastic bottles and coiled tubing.
Hall was arrested on February 20 and admitted that he had a small meth lab and it was "nothing major."
