A man arrested in March 2012 on a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine was arrested again Wednesday on the same charge, the Camden County Sheriff’s Office said.
Officers who went to 222 Sweet Gum Street to talk with Mark Dewayne Adams, 40, about his pending court appearance saw a methamphetamine cooking process in plain site, Deputy William Terrell said.
Adams was arrested and charged with making and possession meth, Terrell said.
The Sheriff’s Office, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Kingsland Fire Department and Camden County Fire Department joined in dismantling the operation and taking away the hazardous chemicals used in the process, Terrell said.
On March 28, 2012, Adams, who was from Philadelphia, Miss., was among three arrested on single counts of manufacturing methamphetamine after a county drug task force shut down a meth lab at 211 West Dillingham Street in St. Marys. Also charged were Benjamin James Rivers, 22, of St. Marys and Kansas Nicole Cochran, 39.
Terrell said he believes it was that case that officers intended to discuss with Adams.
