Randy Travis' brother was arrested on Tuesday (16Jul13) for allegedly manufacturing methamphetamine at his North Carolina home.

David Traywick and his wife Jessica were taken into custody after investigators searched their Marshville property and found a "working" meth lab inside.

The couple was booked at the Union County Jail, along with two other women, and all four were later charged with conspiracy to traffic meth.

The 50 year old is currently behind held on $500,000 (Gbp322,581) bond and is due to appear in court on Wednesday (17Jul13).

Police officials have since moved in to clean up the scene, and a worried neighbour is glad the public is no longer in danger, telling local news station Wsoc-Tv, "They say meth labs can blow up. You just don't know what could happen."

Country star Randy Travis is currently fighting for his life in hospital after suffering a stroke and undergoing heart surgery earlier this month (Jul13).
