Arrest Made for Controlled Substance

On April 15, 2018, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office executed a Search Warrant at a residence on Bear Run Rd. Inv. Jeremy Lea with the 18th West Judicial Drug Task Force assisted with the warrant. The search warrant was based off of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia in the residence. During the search of the residence, officers located several Medical Marijuana packages with different assortments in each. They also discovered honey and other snacks with active Marijuana ingredients in them. Marijuana Brownease and Snickerdoodle were located in the residence. Approximately 5.5 ounces of Marijuana were found in the home. 

“The way the Marijuana industry is marketing these items with the “Medical” label and the way they use candy and other items can lead people, especially children, to believe that they are safe. This is the sort of thing that is coming to Arkansas when the Medical Marijuana gets started.”

The owner of the residence, Mr. Scott Harmon, 56, was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and posted a bond. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
