WALNUT RIDGE, AR(KAIT) – Lawrence County sheriff's deputies were busy Friday, Jan. 31, making numerous drug arrests.

Theresa Lewis, 29, of Black Rock was arrested on four counts of delivery of a controlled substance.

After learning that Lewis was selling prescription drugs out of her home, deputies set up four controlled buys using an undercover informant, Sheriff Jody Dotson said.

The sheriff said the informant purchased "several types of prescription drugs from Lewis."

That information was given to a judge who issued an arrest warrant for Lewis.

On Friday, Jan. 31, deputies working with the Third Judicial Drug Task Force and the Black Rock Police Department arrested Lewis.

In an unrelated case, that same day deputies arrested Kimberly Breckenridge, 23, of Paragould for selling pot in the Sonic parking lot in Walnut Ridge.

Deputies recorded the exchange and arrested Breckenridge on charges of delivery of a controlled substance.

She is also awaiting a bond hearing.

Also on Friday, Lawrence County deputies arrested Scott Callahan of Bono and Taylor Fisher of Hoxie on multiple drug charges.
