White County Officials Investigate Drug Activity in Pangburn

January 28, 2005 -- Posted at 10:30 p.m. CST

SEARCY -- The search led officials to two Pangburn homes where they found what they believe to be marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and small amounts of meth amphetamines.

Captain Clayton Edwards is a part of the White County Sheriff's Department.

"People tend to profile, and they give us information about people who look like they are using drugs. We have to use information like that to our advantage,"said Edwards.

Captain Edwards says alert neighbors noticed a lot of unusual activity around their homes and called police.

He credits them for bringing the problem to his attention.

"We want to stop it before it ever gets out of hand, and it doesn't take long for it to get out of hand in a small community.  We have to put a diligent effort in, and thanks to the sheriff, and all his support, we are able to do that on a daily basis,"said Edwards.

The White County Sheriff's Department is taking a proactive approach to eliminating the drug houses in their area.

Captain Edwards says even one drug house is one too many.

Whether it's been ongoing for several years, which we have made several arrests on extremely old drug houses, and we have also made arrests on new ones. Our main goal is to stop it all,"said Edwards.
