A Taylor County mother and her son have been arrested on drug charges.

The Taylor County Sheriff's Department said deputies were aware of illegal drug activity at the home of Christopher McCauley, as a result of an ongoing investigation into the manufacture of methamphetamine.

McCauley's mother, Rebecca Payne, admitted to purchasing pseudoephedrine at the Rite Aid in Bridgeport for her son's use.  McCauley admitted to making meth using the "one pot method" at his home in Gates Addition in Flemington at least 75 times.

Deputies recovered 13 generators used to "salt out" the meth and three labs.

McCauley and Payne have bonded out of jail.
