FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

A Fayetteville man was arrested Wednesday after he led Cumberland County Sheriff's deputies to materials used to manufacture methamphetamine behind his residence.

Deputies attempted to serve a subpoena at a residence at 2524 Smith Road Wednesday, the sheriff's office said. Patrick Alan Duenes, 29, answered the door and told deputies the woman they were looking for no longer lived there.

Duenes told deputies he met the woman's boyfriend while they were both in the Cumberland County Detention Center. Duenes said the woman's boyfriend asked him to destroy a bag of meth and its byproducts hidden behind the residence at 2524 Smith Road, the sheriff's office said.

Duenes led deputies to a wooded field behind the residence where a bag of decongestant with a receipt was located.

The sheriff's office said deputies traced the receipt and discovered Duenes had purchased and signed for the decongestant in the bag.

Deputies arrested Duenes transported him to the Cumberland County Detention Center.

He was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of precursor chemicals, the sheriff's office said.

Duenes is being held under a $60,000 secured bond.
