HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - A Harrisburg man arrested on drug charges faces enhanced penalties because police say he was selling crystal meth near an elementary school.

On Tuesday Harrisburg police arrested Marvin Eugene Norris at his home in the 700-block of Cox Street.

An officer conducting a probation search reportedly found several containers of crystal meth and ICE, according to Chief Gary Hefner. The officer also reported finding marijuana, as well as digital scales and plastic baggies.

Hefner said a “substantial amount of cash was also confiscated during the probation search.”

Norris is charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. Because of the close proximity of his home to the Harrisburg Elementary School, Hefner said an enhancement will be filed in the case.

On Wednesday, Norris appeared before District Judge Ron Hunter who set bond at $50,000 with a pretrial date set in late September.
