HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - Two suspects arrested in a major drug bust in Poinsett County had their bonds set Wednesday.

 

Poinsett County Sheriff Larry Mills says 53-year old James Tucker and 54-year-old Rebecca Hart had their bonds set at $150,000 each.  Mills says both have bonded out and will appear in court again February 28.

 

Deputies seized several hundred pounds of marijuana along with several guns and a large amount of money.  Deputies found over 400 pounds of marijuana hidden in charcoal bags. Each bag consisted of a two pound block of pot.

 

Sheriff Mills says the bust has been in the works for some time.  "We had received complaints for years that there was drug activity going on at this property," said Mills.

 

Sheriff's deputies arrested Tucker and Hart during the time of the bust.
