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.

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

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.
