TRUMANN, AR  (KAIT) – A Trumann woman who was present the night a police officer was shot and killed was arrested Wednesday morning on charges of possession of methamphetamine or cocaine with purpose to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to an incident report filed at the Trumann Police Department. April Swanner was arrested along with Carl Simpson and James Adams.

According to the report, Adams was pulled over at the intersection of Glascow and South Pine Street in Trumann. The report stated Adams was driving the vehicle owned by Swanner, and he did not have a driver's license.

After all three were asked to step out of the vehicle, K9 Blue, a narcotics dog, sniffed around the vehicle and "alerted" something around the vehicle.

During the search, the officer reports finding various drug paraphernalia and a white powdery substance that appeared to be methamphetamine.

All three are set to appear in Poinsett County Circuit Court on May 28.

Swanner was in the car pulled over by Officer Johnathan Schmidt in 2011, when Jerry Lard opened fire on officers. Schmidt was killed. Lard was found guilty and sentenced to death in 2012. Swanner was not charged with a crime in 2011.
