White Lake Police say a joint investigation with the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office led them to uncover a meth making operation around midnight Saturday at 67 Godwin Rd. in White Lake. Investigators contact the SBI, which responded with a Clandestine Laboratory Response Team to process the scene.

Johnson was booked in jail under a $220,500 bond ahead of his first court appearance today. Police say Johnson may face more charges once test results are confirmed at the North Carolina State Crime Lab.
