A convicted felon with a long criminal history was arrested at his home Friday morning after an active meth lab was found in his residence.

Agents with the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division went to the home of Andy Wayne Wood at King Mill Road, Four Oaks, to execute a drug search warrant.

When Mr. Wood saw the officers, he reportedly barricaded himself inside his single-wide mobile home and fortified the entry door.

Agents were able to forcibly enter the home and allegedly found an active meth lab in a bedroom in the process of making methamphetamines.

Mr. Wood, 43, was arrested at the scene on multiple charges including manufacturing methamphetamines.

Agents with the State Bureau of Investigation responded to the scene to clean up the toxic meth lab components. Johnston County Emergency Management responded with a special decontamination trailer. The Elevation Fire Department stood by at the scene.
