Brother of Randy Travis arrested on meth charge

MARSHVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in Union County say a brother of country singer Randy Travis has been arrested after sheriff’s deputies found a methamphetamine lab inside his home.

Investigators with the sheriff’s office searched the home of 50-year-old David Traywick Tuesday and said they found a working meth lab.

Deputies arrested Traywick, his wife, Jessica, and two other women, charging them with conspiracy to traffic meth. David and Jessica Traywick were jailed under a $500,000 bond apiece and were scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. It couldn’t be determined if either person has an attorney.

Last September, deputies arrested Traywick for allegedly cooking meth in a makeshift lab near his home in Marshville.

Travis is in a Texas hospital, where he’s recovering from surgery following a stroke.
