Local dentist caught with meth

By  | 

POTTSBORO -- A local dentist was arrested earlier this week on meth charges.

Dr. Robert Leslie Hawkins was arrested Monday according to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.

He had been under investigation since 2005.

Investigators say Hawkins was under surveillance Monday when he left his home in the Tanglewood addition. He was on his way to work when they pulled him over for a traffic violation.

In the car, they found approximately $1,000 worth of “ice” methamphetamine.

When they went back to search his home, they found more meth paraphernalia and a 28-year-old woman, Kristine Michelle Phillips, who was also arrested.

No word on what's next for his dental practice.

Investigators say he was actually on his way to work when he was busted.
