Domestic dispute call leads to drug arrest
Jeremy Shane Dyches

A domestic dispute call Wednesday ended up in the arrest of a man on drug-related charges, along with theft and other offenses, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office.

Deputy Randy Weyer responded to the domestic dispute call on U.S. Highway 25 north of Statesboro. A woman said the dispute with Jeremy Shane Dyches, 43, of Buttermilk Road, occurred Tuesday at a home in the 2000 block of Buttermilk Road, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Thursday.

Weyer's investigation revealed that Dyches took a four-wheeler and several other items from the woman after the dispute, Anderson said.

Weyer also saw items he recognized as being drug paraphernalia inside Dyches' home, so he contacted the Bulloch County Drug Suppression Unit for help, the sheriff said.

Drug Suppression investigators responded and found materials used to make methamphetamine, along with drugs that are considered controlled substances, Anderson said.

Dyches was charged with criminal attempt to manufacture meth, possession of a schedule II substance, possession of a schedule IV substance, theft by taking motor vehicle, theft by taking and battery (family violence). He was taken to the Bulloch County Jail to await further judicial proceedings.

Anderson urged residents to report drug activity to the Drug Suppression Unit or through email at
