A Mount Airy man, his daughter and her husband were arrested Tuesday and charged with multiple offenses for allegedly operating a methamphetamine lab at their residence on Ayers Circle, according to a statement released by the Surry County Sheriff’s Office.

Charles Ray Pack, 56, was charged with manufacturing meth, maintaining a drug dwelling and possession of drug paraphernalia and placed under a $25,000 secured bond.

Crystal Sue Hodges, 34, and Jason Alton Hodges, 38, were each charged with manufacturing meth, possession of a meth precursor, maintaining a drug vehicle and felony conspiracy.

Bond was set at $51,500 secured for Crystal Hodges, who was also charged with larceny and a probation violation from outstanding warrants, and a $50,000 secured for Jason Hodges.

Officers found evidence that at least 92 individual “one-pot” labs had been used to cook methamphetamine at the residence while executing a search warrant Tuesday afternoon, according to the statement.

Homeowner Pack was arrested at the conclusion of the search.

The Hodges were stopped later that day while traveling south on U.S. Highway 52 near the Holly Springs exit.

After Crystal Hodges was taken into custody for the outstanding warrants, officers allegedly found in the vehicle methamphetamine precursors including lithium batteries, Sudafed tablets and ammonia nitrate as well as lye and plastic bottles similar to those used in the Ayers Circle labs.

The trio is scheduled to appear in Surry County Court for the drug charges on Dec. 16.
