Two Effingham County men with a history of drug arrests are back in jail on methamphetamine charges.


Robert Stanley Davis, 30, and James Grover, 44, both of Guyton, were arrested Thursday after the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office Drug Suppression Unit got a tip that the two men were in possession of drugs.


Investigators stopped the car Davis and Grover were riding in near the Effingham County Courthouse.


“Deputies located methamphetamine and roxycodone inside of the vehicle, as well as inside an orifice of Mr. Davis,” said ECSO spokesman Detective David Ehsanipoor.


After further investigation, deputies discovered a methamphetamine lab at Grover’s home in the 200 block of Southern Charm Way. He was charged with possession of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of pseudoephedrine, and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.


Davis was charged with criminal attempt to manufacture methamphetamine, unlawful sale and possession of pseudoephedrine, and possession of methamphetamine.


Both men have been arrested on methamphetamine charges before, including two arrests for Davis last year. Davis was arrested on several meth-related charges including trafficking methamphetamine in April 2012, and on charges including manufacturing methamphetamine in October 2012.


Davis was out on bond at the time of his most recent arrest, which, according to Ehsanipoor, is all-too-common when the ECSO makes a meth arrest. He said the majority of the cases involve people who have had prior arrests, are on probation or are out on bond related to methamphetamine.


“It seems to be an ongoing cycle,” Ehsanipoor said. “It’s a very addictive drug. It’s a very dangerous drug. There are some instances of people getting off meth, but it seems that the majority of people who do it keep doing it.”


With that in mind, Ehsanipoor said, “Our main targets in this county are the people manufacturing meth.”


Both Grover and Davis are being held in the Effingham County Jail.
