A man is arrested on drug charges and the unlawful use of 911 after officers arrive at his home.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police officers responded Tuesday afternoon to a residence in the 200 block of Beaufort Road on a report of a possible burglary in progress.   

Robert Boyles, 35, told dispatchers he was home alone and was hearing what he believed to be voices inside, according to the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team. 

Officers searched the home to ensure there was no one else there, but found items they believed to be related with methamphetamine, according to CNT. CNT agents responded and confirmed that the items are commonly used in the manufacturing and use of meth. Police also found evidence that meth was recently manufactured there.  

Meth use can result auditory or visual hallucinations or make people feel as if they have bugs crawling under their skin, according to CNT.

Boyles is charged with possession of certain substances with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, trafficking methamphetamine and unlawful use of 911. 

Boyles is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center. More arrests are expected to be made in the case.
