New Release -2016-02-08 Marty Waggoner
On Monday, February 8, 2016, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, 18th West Judicial Drug Task Force, and the U. S. Forest Service worked together to execute an arrest warrant on Mr. Marty Waggoner of Black Springs. Sheriff David White was notified by the ATF that Mr. Waggoner had a warrant for Possession of Unregistered NFA Weapons and Possession of Firearms by Unlawful Drug User. The warrant stemmed from an incident that happened on June 28, 2015 when Officers from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, 18th West Judicial Drug Task Force, Arkansas Game and Fish, and the U.S. Forest Service executed a search warrant on Mr. Waggoner’s residence. At approximately 7:30 a.m. on the morning of February 8, 2016, Sgt. Will Brakefield and Inv. Lea stopped Mr. Waggoner on Hwy. 8 at the Black Springs store. Sheriff David White, Inv. Mike May, and U.S. Forest Service LEO Chris Johnson also participated in the stop. Mr. Waggoner was told that he had a warrant for his arrest and was taken into custody without incident. Mr. Waggoner was taken to the Montgomery County Jail and eventually transported by federal authorities to court in Hot Springs. At the time of the arrest, Mr. Waggoner was out on bond from the state charges that evolved from the search warrant. Mr. Waggoner is presumed innocent until being found guilty in the court of law.
