A Dawsonville man was arrested last week on a felony charge of tracking in methamphetamine or amphetamine.

Michael Lee Bishop, 48, was arrested after investigators served a search warrant at 848 Etowah River Road.

The warrant detailed that "Bishop did knowingly possess 37.2 grams of methamphetamine in violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act," according to Sheriff Jeff Johnson.

Bishop is currently being held in the Dawson County Detention Center without bail.
