MINTURN, AR (KAIT) – It's planting season in Region 8; but, what one man was growing landed him in jail.

Lawrence County Sheriff's deputies arrested 29-year-old Timothy Harbin of Minturn on drug charges.

According to Sheriff Jody Dotson, his department received information from concerned citizens that Harbin was growing marijuana in his home. 

On Thursday, March 14, deputies served a search warrant at Harbin's home.  Sheriff Dotson says Harbin told deputies he was indeed growing pot and agreed to cooperate.

Inside the home, Dotson says, deputies found several marijuana plants along with grow lights and other items used to grow pot.  He says they also found a small amount of harvested marijuana and items used to smoke it.

Harbin was arrested for possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), manufacture of a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He's locked up in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
