RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A four-month campaign targeting the manufacture of methamphetamine in Craven County has resulted in a string of arrests and dismantled meth labs.

This spring, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation has dismantled and removed three meth labs in the area. The Coastal Narcotic Enforcement Team arrested six people on meth-related charges and an additional five people on other drug-related charges.

The narcotics unit warns the community that products containing pseudoephedrine and ephedrine are often used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. These chemicals can be found in prescription and over-the-counter decongestants. Police monitor the purchase of these products.
