An Alma man was charged with making meth after a home was searched Thursday night.  

Alma police said they carried out a search warrant just after 7 p.m. Thursday at a home on Church Street and discovered two, one-pot meth labs brewing. Needles, filters, various chemicals, and other drug paraphernalia were also found during the search, according to police.   

Timothy Hood, 42, of Alma, was arrested at the home and charged with manufacturing methamphetamines. Hood is being held without bond at the Bacon County jail. Prior to his arrest, Hood was serving of 10-year probation sentence for similar charges involving methamphetamines. Alma police investigators had been investigating Hood since November 2013.

"We've receive[d] several calls from people in the neighborhood complaining about a weird smell coming from the area of Hood's residence," said Sgt. Jim Bloodworth, in a statement. "Some of them would even complain about the non-stop traffic in and out of Hood's yard."  

Coastal Plains Environmental Inc., which is a hazardous materials company out of Adel, GA, conducted the cleanup and disposal of the hazardous waste.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations and Southeast Region Drug Task Force agents assisted with the investigation at the home.
