MIDWAY, AR (KAIT) – After two men attempted to flee on foot from Baxter County Sheriff's Deputies, the two were arrested when found drugs in their possession.

Sheriff's Investigator Michael Day and Officer Tommy Steen with the Department of Community Corrections said they went to a home on 631 CR 508 in the Midway area to see parolee David Dziabula, 30, on Wednesday. When they arrived, they said they noticed Christopher Cody Tabler, 28, of CR 604 near Midway, standing near a parked car on the property right before he began to run.

Officers said they chased Tabler and noticed he was carrying a black bag and running alongside Dziabula when they came around one corner of the house. Deputies then said Tabler and Dziabula stopped running when they hit the edge of the property and surrendered.

According to Day and Steen, Tabler had thrown the black bag to the side during the chase. When officers found it, they said they found two cans with screw off bottoms used to hold contraband items.

Officers seized 7 grams of methamphetamine described as "Mexcian Ice;" several hydrocodone and diazepam tablets; a smoking pipe; several bags of a leafy, green substance tentatively identified as "K-3", a synthetic marijuana product; and $550 in cash. Officers say the meth found was worth around $700.

Both men were taken to Baxter County Detention Center and charged with the following:

  • Possession of Controlled Substance - Methamphetamine - Felony
  • Possession of Controlled Substance - Hydrocodone and Diazepam - Felony
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia - Felony
  • Habitual Offender - Felony
  • Parole Violation – Felony

Both bonds are set at $50,000 with no bond holds on parole violations. They are both due in circuit court on March 10.
