HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) -

A Harrisburg man was arrested Friday on drug charges after calling officers to his home for a stolen wallet.

Harrisburg police responded to 43-year-old Gabriel Mills’ home in the 100-bock of Normal Avenue around 2:30 a.m.

Mills had called police to report someone had stolen his wallet and broken into his house and left a bag of methamphetamine on his kitchen counter.

Officer Justin Kimble with the Harrisburg Police Department said in his report that it was obvious Mills was under the influence of drug.

Officer Kimble and Deputy Sheriff Bobby New of the Poinsett County Sheriff’s Department cleared the house to make sure nobody was inside the house as Mills had reported.

The officers found several items of drug paraphernalia as well as a handgun and rifle inside of the house.

There was also 7 grams of meth found.

Mills was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, felon in possession of firearms and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms.

Harrisburg Police Chief Gary Hefner said that because Mills’ house is in close proximity of the Harrisburg School, an enhancement will be filed to carry an additional 10-year sentence if he is found guilty of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver.

Mills was taken before Harrisburg District Judge Ron Hunter Friday.

His bond was set at $250,000 cash only. He is expected back in court on Jan. 28.
