Thanks to a tip from the public, a wanted man with methamphetamine was arrested at a recent high school football game.

The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) received word on Friday, September 25 that a wanted person from Grayson County was at the high school football game being played between Grayson County and Breckinridge County schools in Hardinsburg.

Wendell “Robin” Embry was being sought by the GCSO for over $13,000 in arrears on child support and was facing a charge of flagrant non-support.

Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins contacted Breckinridge County Sheriff Todd Pate with a description of the subject and his reported whereabouts.

According to Chaffins, “Sheriff Pate was able to make contact with Embry as he was leaving the game. A subsequent search of Embry’s person revealed two bindles of methamphetamine and a ‘meth’ pipe used to smoke the drug.”

In addition to being served the Grayson County warrant, Embry was charged with possession of a controlled substance in the first degree, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Embry was lodged in the Breckinridge County Detention Center.

Based on information from the Grayson and Breckinridge County Sheriff’s Offices, a search warrant for Embry’s Grayson County residence was obtained by the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force.

Evidence obtained from the search will be presented to the Grayson County Grand Jury at a later date.

“The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the citizens of Grayson County for their continued support by providing vital information on the whereabouts of wanted persons and the drug dealers that infest this county,” Chaffins said, adding, “We continue to receive tips on other drug dealers and we would like everyone to know that we will continue to follow up on each and every tip by utilizing every resource available to us.”
