Former probation officer arrested on drug charges

WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) - A former Region 8 probation officer accused of stealing prescription pills found herself behind bars recently.

Megan Price, 25, is charged with theft of property and theft of prescription drugs.

Lawrence County sheriff's deputies arrested Price after a judge issued a bench warrant. Details of the warrant have not been released.

Price, who worked as a probation officer for the Lawrence and Randolph County District Courts, is currently free on bond awaiting a Jan. 14 court date.

Detective Jamie White of the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office said Price's arrest had nothing to do with her job as a district court probation officer.
