DENISON, Tex. -- Two people are in custody after a meth lab bust in Denison, and their child is now in the hands of Child Protective Services.

Authorities say 26-year-old Matthew Wright and his 22-year-old wife, Candace Wright, were arrested just after midnight Tuesday charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

Grayson County Sheriff’s Deputies raided their home in the 900 block of Chase Street early Wednesday morning. That residence is within 1,000 feet of a school.

In the back yard, deputies found an active meth lab complete with chemicals and glassware used to make the drug. The couple’s three-year-old child was also at the home at the time.

"The baby went to a family member’s house. CPS will be doing a further investigation. Another child was actually taken into CPS custody not long ago that was not here at the time," Sgt. Ricky Wheeler of the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office said.

Because the meth lab was near a school, if the couple is charged they could face a prolonged sentence.

    HEY RYDER...maybe because people might know the parents of matt..maybe they were at the house the other day locking everything down, and they told us they had the kid...maybe because i personally seen the grandmother come and pick the little boy up at 2:30 in the morning of the raid..the grandparents are also the ones who have the other child...

    Does it not seem like drugs are more rampant in Denison than anywhere else in the county? I realize that drug busts happen everywhere but like in Van Alstyne and Howe they are often people passing through on 75. It just seems like every other house in Denison has a meth lab. I find it all amazing. How can so many people resort to drug use. Here is a question. Has any succesful human being ever been a meth user? I don't think so. If you are on meth you might want to take a look at the kind of social status your and your fellow users have. Not a lot of successful, respectable people doing meth is there. Respect yourself and get out of that trap.

    Saying the neighbors were buyers is B.S. They are victims!

    Don't bother calling the Grayson Sheriffs... they are too busy doing something that doesn't matters! Dial 911

    I had Matt Wright when he was in elementary school. He was a super nice guy and very much a gentleman. At one time he had the world at his fingertips. It just shows how powerful a drug can be. Maybe now he can get the help he needs and find peace within himself.
