The first bust was off N.C. 772 near Pine Hall. The second bust was at a home on Covington Road in the community of Quaker Gap just north of King. At the Covington Road home, Billy Gray Evans, 44, faces several charges, including manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking methamphetamine, maintaining a drug house, possession of precursor chemicals and felony possession of marijuana. Evans is being held under a $200,000 secured bond. A 4-year-old girl was discovered at Evans' home. She is currently in the care of the North Carolina Division of Social Services. Chemists from the SBI are working to clean up the meth lab near Pine Hall and arrests are expected by Wednesday morning.

    Uhhhh… How about the NC SBI is the one that initiated the search on Covington Rd with the “assistance” of Stokes Co Sheriffs Office!!!!!!! Give credit where it is due!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it wasn’t for the SBI, they probably would have never done anything!!!!!!

    I agree MNS, hats off to the NC SBI!!! If it wasn’t for the SBI this guy would have never been arrested, Stokes is so far behind time it’s unreal! This guy didn’t kill anyone, so he’ll probably get more time than 30 days in jail….

      I don’t know if Stokes is behind or not, but I do know this guy does n have a rich daddy who is friends with the judge so yes, he will get more than 30 days.
      We all need to boycott rich daddy’s business. Just saying…

      Me too! But if it hadn’t been for the “SBI”… there is no telling how much longer that child would have been in that house!!!!!

    The NC SBI has nothing on the Stokes Co. law enforcement agencies. As far as rich daddies and buying judges, your comments are way to similar to your Facebook rants. I’ve a good mind to call you out and air your name.
