JPD: Man hid large package of pot in his pants | Crime
An Earle man faces felony drug charges after Jonesboro police say they found a large package of pot in his underpants.
According to his initial report, Officer Nicholas Holley said while patrolling the area of Nettleton and Stadium Sunday night he saw a silver Infiniti I30 run a red light.
After stopping the vehicle, Officer Holley reportedly learned the driver, 21-year-old Deadrick Furlow of Earle, had a suspended driver’s license. Officer Holley arrested Furlow and put him into the back of his patrol car.
After noticing two passengers try to hide something in the floorboard, Holley asked dispatch to send Craighead County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Jones and K9 “Joker” to search the car.
While “Joker” sniffed the vehicle, Officer Holley frisked the three passengers. He said 20-year-old Alex Lincoln of Earle was “not being cooperative and was refusing to listen” to his commands. It was at that time the officer said he noticed “several small plastic bags on the ground that contained marijuana.”
While Officer Holley collected the bags, Deputy Jones ran “Joker” around the vehicle. “Joker” reportedly “alerted on the vehicle” and the passenger side where Lincoln had been sitting.
Holley then arrested Lincoln and transported him and Furlow to the Craighead County Detention Center. Once there, the jailer reportedly found a small bag of marijuana in Lincoln’s right sock and a large plastic bag containing several small bags of marijuana inside his underwear. According to the report, the bag contained 22 individually-wrapped bags of marijuana weighing approximately 1 gram each.
Furlow was cited for Driving with a Suspended License and running a red light. Lincoln was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Purpose to Deliver-Felony and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
