MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) -

Several arrests were made in Baxter County following the execution of 2 search warrants in drug investigations at the same home.

According to Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel the warrants were served at 304 Foster St. on April 9.

Manuel said during the investigation 3 Mountain Home residents were arrested including John Dryden, Rebecca Conner and a 16-year-old male. 

While searching the residence Manuel said officers found "several substances believed to be methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, and marijuana" in the home.

Police also discovered a "marijuana grow operation and paraphernalia used to ingest and distribute narcotics," the chief said.

Dryden and Conner were arrested on several felony drug charges and the juvenile was charged with 2 drug-related misdemeanors.

Dryden remains in jail on a parole hold, but Conner was released after posting a $25,000 bond.

Manuel said the following week investigators continued to learn about drug trafficking at the same residence. A search warrant was served at the home once again on Monday.

During that search Manuel said officers found "a quantity" of what is believe to be meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Conner was arrested again along with 3 others on felony drug charges. Conner is in jail on a $100,000 bond.

Bond for Ramona Taylor of Flippin, Kevin Hutson of Mountain Home and William Brandon Hall of Mountain Home were set at $25,000 each.
