A tip relating to the whereabouts of a wanted man led police to arrest three Clarkson residents on Tuesday evening, Oct. 11.
Clarkson Police Chief Buck Meredith received information on Tuesday that a wanted person, Keith Lancaster, 47, of Clarkson, was located at a residence on Rocky Hill Estates Road.
At approximately 8:47 p.m., Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) Deputies Joey Beasley and Clay Boone, GCSO Special Deputy Mark Stanton, and Meredith arrived at the residence to attempt to locate Lancaster, according to a news release from Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins.
Lancaster was wanted on a Grayson County Grand Jury warrant for Manufacturing Methamphetamine, 1st Offense (a felony), and Cultivating Marijuana Less Than 5 Plants, Chaffins said.
Upon arrival at the scene, GCSO Deputies located three males at the residence and were able to determine that one of them was Lancaster.
They were then able to obtain a search warrant based on their observations at the scene and confiscated approximately two pounds of processed marijuana and seeds, a small amount of suspected crystal methamphetamine, synthetic marijuana, drug paraphernalia, scales, several pills not in proper containers, and a handgun, Chaffins said.
Lancaster was arrested on the warrants, and two other men, 57-year-old Michael Baker and 30-year-old Robert Greathouse, both of Clarkson, were arrested and charged with Hindering Apprehension, 2nd Degree, according to Chaffins.
All three individuals were lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center.
The case will be presented to the Grayson County Grand Jury and additional charges are pending on all three suspects, Chaffins said.
The investigation is ongoing.
