A Carter County man twice arrested on meth-related charges was served Tuesday with an arrest warrant in a new drug case.

Dustin Caleb Potter, 29, 203 Old Charity Hill Road, Elizabethton, faces three counts of promotion of methamphetamine manufacturing and three counts of attempted methamphetamine promotion.

According to an arrest warrant filed this week, Potter pleaded guilty in Carter County on Jan. 15 to misdemeanor charges related to a meth lab discovered in his car in October 2012. Less than a month later, he was arrested again in Carter County when components of a meth lab were found in his car.

That arrest came Feb. 13 while Potter was on probation from the first case. Potter appeared in Carter County Sessions Court this week and the case was bound over to a grand jury.

According to the Washington County warrant, Potter is accused of purchasing pseudoephedrine from various pharmacies in Johnson City three different times in February and attempting to purchase the medication three other times in January and February.

Potter also faces a violation of probation charge and has multiple driving charges pending in Carter County.

He was arraigned on the Washington County charges Wednesday and has a hearing scheduled Aug. 15. He’s being held on a $1,500 bond.
