Izard Co. man accused of using cabin to grow marijuana


IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – An Izard County man is accused of using his cabin for more than just camping out in the woods, police say he was growing marijuana.

According to Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence, 57-year-old James Eddie Winders faces three drug related charges and a weapons charge.

Sheriff Lawrence said his department, along with the Drug Task Force and Arkansas Game and Fish, arrested Winders after officers found an inside marijuana grow operation at a cabin on Clean Water Lane, in the Crystal Shoal Subdivision.

Lawrence said twelve "fairly large" marijuana plants, a small amount of processed marijuana, marijuana seeds, and a rifle was seized during a search of the cabin.

Winders is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacturing a controlled substance, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
