WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) – Friday was a busy day for the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies, acting on citizen tips, arrested three people in two separate drug busts.

Officers arrested Jeremy Robinette, 26, on charges of possession of prescription drugs, delivery of a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Sheriff Jody Dotson, deputies received information that Robinette was dealing marijuana from his home in Walnut Ridge.

Deputies ran a check on Robinette and discovered he was on probation and suspended imposition of sentence (SIS).

Officers then went to his home and conducted a search where they found prescription drugs and pot, Dotson said.

The sheriff said Robinette admitted to selling marijuana from his residence.

In the second bust, deputies arrested Kelsey Hanshaw, 21, of Walnut Ridge and Joshua Anglin, 27, of Hoxie on charges of possession of meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Dotson said his office received information of "illegal drug activity at Hanshaw's residence."

Again, deputies learned Hanshaw was on probation and SIS.

Officers found Hanshaw and Anglin at the home, along with the drugs and paraphernalia, Dotson said.

All three suspects were taken to the Lawrence County Jail to await bond hearings.

Dotson said Robinette, Hanshaw and Anglin tested positive for illegal drugs.
