A Grayson County man was arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine after officers responded to his home on a domestic violence call Friday morning, Dec. 20.


Sheriff Rick Clemons and Special Deputy Joey McClung, with the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department, were dispatched to 1139 Blackrock Road at 7 a.m. Friday morning on a domestic violence call.


Once on scene, Clemons and McClung saw what appeared to be several methamphetamine precursors inside a pickup truck outside of the residence.


Deputy Buck Meredith was called to the scene and a search warrant was issued for the residence and property.


According to Meredith, the meth precursors were removed from the truck and three inactive methamphetamine labs were found discarded outside of the home.


Kevin Bruce Sipes, 42, of Blackrock Road, was arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and assault in the fourth degree, domestic violence.


He is currently lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center.


GCSO officers cleared all meth precursors and products from the property.
