ELLABELL, GA (WTOC) -

A man out on bond on methamphetamine charges was arrested again last week after an investigation by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team. 

CNT got a tip on Dec. 6 while working undercover about a possible methamphetamine lab at a home on Stubb's Lane in Ellabell.

CNT agents and Bryan County Sheriff's Office deputies searched the home, which resulted in the seizure of a meth lab, according to CNT. The lab was located in an open area in the home that was shared by a child.     

George Rountree, 48, was charged with manufacturing meth, possession of meth and children present during the manufacture of methamphetamine, according to the CNT.

This is his second arrest by CNT. In October 2011, CNT and Bryan County Sheriff's Office searched the same home that resulted in the seizure of a meth lab and firearms, according to the CNT.

In that case, Rountree was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking methamphetamine and weapon charges. He was out on bond for that case at the time of last week's arrest. 

Rountree is being held at the Bryan County Detention Center.
