WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) – Months of undercover drug buys ended this week with the arrests of several Region 8 residents.

Lawrence County sheriff's deputies, working with officers with the Third Judicial Drug Task Force and Black Rock Police Department, made the arrests Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 5-6.

Karrie Ward, 35, of Powhatan; Jason Holmes, 30, of Walnut Ridge; Ronnie Moore, Jr., 37, of Powhatan; and Jack Hampton, 67, of Black Rock are charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

According to Sheriff Jody Dotson, the arrests stem from several months of undercover surveillance and informants purchasing prescription drugs from the suspects.

Dotson said the drugs included morphine, xanax and valium.

All of the suspects are being held in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting bond hearings.
