IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Two people were arrested on several drug related charges December 28, after being pulled over for a loud muffler.

Cpl. Ronnie Stewart with Arkansas State Police pulled over Jack Miller, age 25, of Melbourne for having a muffler that was too loud. Miller was originally charged with an improper muffler, driving while intoxicated, having no seatbelt, and operating a vehicle without insurance. 

A search of Miller and the vehicle revealed several drug related items. The passenger, 37-year-old Shane Taylor, was also searched and several drug items were found on him. 

Two metal spoons with heavy white residue, one small zip-lock bag with heavy white powdery residue, one ink pen tube with residue, and four insulin syringes were found between the driver and passenger inside the vehicle. A plastic drinking straw believed to be used to ingest meth, a small white bag containing crystalline substance, five more syringes, multicolored glass smoking device, and several small plastic zip lock bags were also found in the vehicle.

While being searched at the Izard County Detention Center, two additional bags of a crystalline substance and a smoking device with residue in it was located in his pants. 

In addition to his original charges, Miller received felony charges for possession with the intent to use drug paraphernalia and possession with purpose to use meth paraphernalia, and a misdemeanor for possession with the intent to use marijuana paraphernalia.

Miller posted his bond of $15,000, and was given a misdemeanor court date for January 9 and a felony court date for January 13.

Taylor received felony charges for possession of meth with intent to deliver, possession of meth with intent to use, and furnishing prohibited articles into jail. He also posted his $15,000 bond, was given two court dates, and was released.
