A Pike County man was arrested Thursday and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Joshua Chad Little, 34, of 658 County Road 1117, was arrested around 5:30 p.m. Thursday after deputies seized a meth lab at his residence in the Shellhorn Community.

Deputies seized three bottles containing meth oil, two other bottles containing a white past-like substance tentatively identified as ephedrine, and a cold-pack – all of which are consistent with a one-pot cook method for meth, according to a press release issued by Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas.
