SHARP COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – Three arrests made and multiple drugs were discovered by officers in Sharp County while attempting to serve an arrest warrant.

According to the Sharp County Sheriff Mark Counts, officers with the sheriff's department, Arkansas State Police and the 3rd Judicial District Drug Task Force went to 473 Big Creek Road on Tuesday to serve Dudley Thomas.

Counts states the owner of the home told police Thomas was in an upstairs bedroom and gave them permission to search.

When officers went upstairs, they found William Ring, Alisha Allard and Malachai Curry. Officers say they also found drug paraphernalia and several pills in unmarked containers on the bed.

All three were taken downstairs and searched.

According to the sheriff, Ring was found to have a baggie with suspected meth, a bottle with Klonopin pills and a used syringe on him. Allard was found to have suspected marijuana on her after being searched.

After receiving consent from the homeowner, officers found other bottles with an assortment of pills, a baggie with a white powdery substance, meth, various glass smoking devices and another used syringe.

Ring is charged with possession of meth, drug paraphernalia and a narcotic. Allard is charged with possession of marijuana. Curry is charged with possessing an instrument of crime.

Dudley Thomas, who officers were initially looking for, fled the home as officers arrived. Officers are currently searching for Thomas.
