JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A Jonesboro man is locked up in the Craighead County Detention Center after officers say they found about $10,000 worth of drugs at his home.

On Tuesday members of the Jonesboro Police Department's PROWL Unit, along with the 2nd Judicial Drug Task Force, served a search warrant at an apartment in the Caraway Commons.
