Arkansas duo charged with drug crimes

A major bust at a residential home in Trumann has led to two arrests, according to the county sheriff's office. Arkansas authorities arrested a 31-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman after the raid allegedly turned up money, guns and drugs. Both individuals are charged with a litany of drug crimes, and if they are found guilty, both could face jail time. 

Around 6:30 a.m. on Feb. 21, a joint task force combining elements of the Poinsett County Sheriff's Office and the Trumann Police Department obtained and executed a search warrant on a residence in Trumann. Police say they discovered two rifles, a handgun, $2,000 in cash and a variety of what they believed to be drugs and drug paraphernalia in the residence. Specifically, they say they recovered cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana and methamphetamine, as well as a variety of other pills. 

The 31-year-old man was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and felony possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as several weapons charges. The 28-year-old woman faces one count of possession with intent to deliver. Both individuals are currently in police custody awaiting a probable cause hearing. 

Drug crimes of this severity carry a heavy penalty in the state of Arkansas. However, it will be up to the prosecution to provide compelling evidence for each of the myriad charges filed against these two individuals. Both of these people will be represented by their own criminal defense counsel, who will work to build a strong defense against these charges through careful review of the facts and law of the case.
