JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A parole check Tuesday morning resulted in the arrest of a Jonesboro parolee on drug dealing and bootlegging charges.

At approximately 10 a.m. Jonesboro police conducted a parole check on an apartment in the 500 block of East Roseclair.

According to the initial incident report, 53-year-old Alvin Lee Green has been paroled at the residence for several years.

During the search officers reportedly found 13 bags of marijuana in a kitchen drawer. They also reported finding 10 more bags of marijuana inside a metal can of baby formula. In another baby formula can, officers stated they found some marijuana “shake” and a razor blade.

Officers also found “a very large amount and several different kinds of alcohol in the kitchen,” the report stated.

While officers were searching the kitchen, another investigator searched Green's bedroom and reportedly found an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine and cash.

At that point an officer arrested Green and read him his Miranda rights.

According to the report, Green “admitted” he sold the drugs and alcohol from his home.

Green was taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where, as of 3:30 p.m., he is being held without bond and on a parole hold awaiting a probable cause hearing.

He is charged with possession of meth or cocaine with the purpose to deliver, possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance with the purpose to deliver and as a parole violator. All are felonies.

Green is also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and sale, barter, or possession for sale or barter in a dry area.
