Three Bulloch County men are under arrest and one of them is facing charges related to methamphetamine.

Deputies were called to a home in the Burkhalter Mobile Home Park Thursday on a tip that two men were possibly using methamphetamine.

He was later found inside and taken into custody based on an existing arrest warrant, BCSO said.
