LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – Loose horses and a crippled fence lead officers to a drug arrest.

On Christmas night, Lawrence County deputies responded to a call about horses being out.  Officers arrived to the home of Michael Bernard, 41, in Imboden to inform him his animals were loose and that he needed to fix his fence.

Sheriff Dotson said that deputies received information that Bernard was involved in legal drug activity. A check indicated that Bernard was on probation and sis for drug charges. A sis search was conducted. Marijuana and drug paraphernalia was found on Bernard along with drug paraphernalia with meth residue found in his home.

After helping deputies put the horses back in the pasture, Bernard was taken to the Lawrence County Jail.

He was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He is awaiting a bond hearing.
