On Jan. 16, Knox County Deputy Sheriff Keith Liford received an anonymous tip of a possible meth lab on Arbor Dr. in Gray. Deputy Liford and Constable Carl Bolton responded and contacted the owner. After receiving permission to search the residence, a container of white powdered substance and a container of prescription pills were found attached to a ring of keys, as well as, a partially cooked pill on a can and two syringes.

Officers found a one step meth lab inside a truck in the driveway and arrested the owner, Billy Ray Lowe, 34, of Gray, charging him with manufacturing methamphetamine and other various drug related charges.
