POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A business known for serving up southern seafood was apparently a front for drug activity, according to sheriff's investigators.

Three arrests were made during a drug investigation at H&T Crawfish on Highway 1 in Harrisburg Friday afternoon.

An incident report from the Poinsett County Sheriff's Department stated officers from multiple agencies executed a search warrant at the business following information about drugs being used and sold there.

More information was also received that "young kids" were receiving and using drugs there as well. Furthermore, investigators heard stolen property from Jonesboro was there.

By reviewing surveillance video, officers knew that owner Gregory Heath Bornhoft, Trevor Bornhoft and Heath Harris were all at the store on a regular basis.

The report also stated that other subjects who are known to be involved in drugs were always in and out of the store.

Officers executed a search warrant at the business and found Harris and Mila Muse in an office.

Trevor Bornhoft was not at the store at the time, and Gregory Bornhoft was later arrested behind Jackson Funeral Home in Harrisburg.

During the search, officers found three foil boats containing suspected meth, bags containing meth, suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

A John Deere riding lawn mower that had been reported stolen out of Jonesboro was also found.

During the end of the search, Trevor Bornhoft was found on Massengill Road.

Gregory Bornhoft and Harris were both charged with theft by receiving, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of controlled substance marijuana and possession of controlled substance meth.

Muse was charged with theft by receiving, furnishing prohibited articles into a jail and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
