BONO, AR (KAIT) -

Bono police recently arrested three people for possession of meth.

The first incident happened Friday evening when police responded to a gunshot victim who had shot himself in the foot.

After securing the scene, police began to search the home and found a clear bag with meth inside it. They also found three metal marijuana pipes in the tank of the toilet and four used syringes.

Police arrested 35-year-old Leah Lindquist and 28-year-old Heather Rushford for possession of meth.

Lindquist was given a temporary bond of $10,000 and Rushford received a $5,000 bond.

Two days later, on Sunday, police pulled over a green Ford pickup with a back light out.

According to the report, the driver, 29-year-old Mark Qualls, kept reaching forward in the truck so the officer had him get out of the vehicle.

The officer stated that the driver continued to act nervous and a glass pipe fell out of Qualls pants leg.

Police searched Qualls' car and found a clear bag with meth inside it.

Qualls was arrested on charges of felony possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of meth.
