UPDATE-- A meth lab bust in Sherman lands two men behind bars. William Blair Armstrong, 50, of Sherman is charged with possession of chemicals with the intent to manufacture meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute.

Armstrong's neighbor, Chad Wayne Davis was charged with possession of a dangerous drug.

SHERMAN, Tex. -- A meth lab in Sherman is no longer in use. The Grayson County Sheriff's Office busted the lab on Friday and arrested the man responsible.

What began as a traffic stop became a major meth bust for Sherman Police and Grayson County deputies.

A man was pulled over by Sherman Police around 10:30 Friday morning. What officers found in his car is what led them to a meth lab.

During the traffic stop at the 1200 block of Lamar, officers found glasswear, tubing, and funnels in the car, all components needed to cook meth.

Officers ran a search and discovered the man had a criminal history and called the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.

The man consented to a search of his home in the 800 block of Martin.

Grayson Co. Sheriff’s Sgt. Rickey Wheeler says upon arrival of the residence, authorities found the man had been producing meth in his attic.

It was not the first time they had been called to this house. Wheeler says they busted the man twice in 2003 for making meth, and the needles, glass jars, and scales weren't the only things officers found.

The man, whose name has not been released, is still custody. He was arrested for possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute.

This was a violation of his parole. The suspect is looking at a possible 20 years behind bars.

    There is no way to quantify the horrible suffering and anguish caused by these guy's "product". It is deadly to the addict and devistating to all those around them. Let's send a message, give these guy's life without parole.
