JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro police say three parolees were arrested after police found drugs during a search, but two of them told officers they could say who the drugs belonged to.

According to Officer Bryan Bailey, the arrests happened Saturday morning at the home of a man on parole on Duncan Road and Arrowhead Farm Road.

Officer Bailey says he was watching the home when he noticed some suspicious behavior. According to the initial police report, when he walked up to the home he overheard parts of a conversation about buying drugs.

He approached three people once they left the home. One of the men, Andrew Prince, told officer Bailey "he didn't want to lie and that he was about to buy some Xanax bars."

That prompted a home search by Officer Bailey and Officer Asa Ladd.

During that search the officers identified the two other people with Prince as Stacy Robertson and Finus Sloan. Both were on parole.

According to the report, officers found a glass meth pipe and hydrocodone pill in Sloan's jacket. Officers also found suspected marijuana and multiple pills inside a glucose test strip bottle in the master bedroom and bathroom.

Both Robertson and Sloan told Officer Ladd that the drugs didn't belong to them, but they "can't say whose it was."

In Robertson's purse, officers say they found meth ice.

Their find didn't stop inside the home, while being transported to the Craighead County jail, officers say they found meth in the back seat of the patrol car where Sloan was sitting after Prince pulled Officer Bailey aside to tell him about it.

Prince is charged with probation violation and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance (marijuana and pills).

Sloan was charged with possession of a controlled substance (meth).

Robertson was charged felony possession of a controlled substance (meth).

As of  Monday night, all three remain in the Craighead County Jail.
