3 arrested in NC meth lab investigation


SURRY COUNTY (WXII) — A man, his daughter and her husband were arrested after deputies allege nearly 100 “one-pot” meth labs were used at a Surry County home.

Charles Ray Pack, 56, Crystal Sue Hodges, 34, and Jason Alton Hodges, 38, all of Mount Airy, each face multiple charges following a search Tuesday at a home on Ayers Circle off Franklin Road.

Surry County deputies said at least 92 individual or “one-pot” meth labs were used to cook meth at the home. Deputies released images of the found evidence Wednesday.

Pack was arrested at the home. Pack’s daughter, Crystal Hodges, and her husband, Jason Hodges, were seen heading south on Highway 52 near the Holly Springs exit and taken into custody, deputies said.

A search of the Hodges’ vehicle found meth precursors including bottles that were similar to those found at the Ayres Circle home, deputies said.

All three suspects were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and maintaining a drug dwelling or drug vehicle.

The Hodges also were charged with possession of a meth precursor and jailed under $50,000 secured bonds.

Pack also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and jailed under a $25,000 secured bond.

Crystal Hodges also was charged on an outstanding warrant for larceny from a Mount Airy business, deputies said.
