Deputies say they received a tip that 34-year-old Joel Collins had illegal drugs at his home on the 400 block of Beulah Church Road.
TCSO says part of Collins' probation included the clause that law enforcement could search his home at any time, but if Collins was trying to hide his drugs, he did a pretty bad job of it.
Cmmdr. Kevin Lee of Thomas County Narcotics says when the drug squad "executed the search clause in [Collins'] bedroom ... [they] found a poker chip box that had his initials on it and ... also found inside the box 2 cellophane wraps containing methamphetamine."
Deputies say the drug is quickly becoming an even bigger problem, thanks to new equipment that allows addicts to make small quantities of meth at home.
