May 5th, 2010 Traffic stop ends in two drug arrests.
From the desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley
On Wednesday May 5, 2010 the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department received a call that there was a vehicle driving on Hwy 95 with people on top of the vehicle. Sheriff Scott Bradley was in the area, and made contact with the vehicle just minutes after the call came in. Sheriff Bradley noticed that all three of the passengers in the vehicle were acting nervous. Their stories of what they were doing didn’t match up. A short time Arkansas State Police Cpl. Kip Stringer arrived at the scene to assist Sheriff Bradley. A search of the occupants revealed approximately 1 gram of suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, illegal narcotics in pill form and a small amount of marijuana. Once the illegal drugs were discovered, Sheriff Bradley called for the 20th Judicial Drug Task Force to assist.
20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Marcus Vaden will be filing the following charges: Nicholas Guzzo, 20, of Conway and Jarrod Ticer, 19, also of Conway are charged with Possession of Controlled Substance with intent to deliver, methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of controlled substance medication without a prescription and possession of marijuana. Both are being held at the Van Buren County Detention Center on $25,000 bond.
