An Jackson man who deputies say has a history of drug charges against him was arrested Wednesday at his Drag Strip Road home where investigators found methamphetamine and the components to make the drug, officials say. Randall Wayne Robertson, 51, has been charged with attempted manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arrested for similar charges in 2004 and 2006. On Wednesday, deputies received a tip that the Jackson man was manufacturing drugs again and they found a methamphetamine lab, said Capt. Troy Elwell, a spokesperson for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. Deputies went to the home, and Robertson gave them permission to search his property, deputies say. "During the search they found the lab in an outbuilding," Elwell explained. The lab was not operating at the time, but drugs were found as well. In 2006, Robertson was sentenced to five years probation after admitting to prosecutors that he had been operating a meth lab at the same Drag Strip Road home. Judge Tommy Russo told Robertson at the time he would be lenient on him, but was stern about him staying out of trouble. His attorney at the time said he felt Robertson had learned his lesson. He is being held at the Aiken County detention center. Contact Karen Daily at
