GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A Lafe man faces drug charges after a narcotics bust operation.

According to an incident report, the Greene County Sheriff’s Department arranged a meetup at Harvey’s Chapel Cemetery between a confidential informant and 64-year-old Michael Faries for the purchase of three packages of meth for $550.

Officers followed the informant, equipped with an audio recording device, and Faries to the cemetery where they waited for a take down signal.

Once the informant signaled, Sheriff David Carter along with other officers took Faries into custody without incident.

Three plastic baggies of meth were taken from the informant, who told officers it was given to him by Faries but money had not yet been exchanged, according to the report.

The report states 11.6 grams of meth was found as well as 31.5 grams of marijuana.

The report also states officers found a bag of marijuana in the door handle of Faries driver side door.

Faries is charged with delivery of meth or cocaine and possession of marijuana/controlled substance.
