JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Craighead County district court judge found probable cause Thursday to charge a Jonesboro man with drug trafficking.

Jimmy McDuffy III, 40, is charged with possession of meth or cocaine with the purpose to deliver greater than 2 grams but less than 10 grams, possession of a Schedule I or II controlled substance not meth or cocaine with the purpose to deliver, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Wednesday, Oct. 12, agents with the Second Judicial Drug Task Force conducted a parole search at an apartment in the 600-block of Stratford Drive, according to the probable cause statement.

While walking up the stairs, an officer heard someone remove the toilet tank lid then put it back on, the affidavit said. The agent then saw McDuffy exiting the bathroom and took him downstairs.

Agents then began the parole search and the officer went immediately to the bathroom, lifted the tank lid and reportedly found a blue methamphetamine pipe submerged in the water.

The search also turned up two more meth pipes, along with  6.7 grams of suspected meth, 40 suspected ecstasy tablets, 0.3 grams of an unknown purple powder, an unknown blue and purple tablet, and a set of scales.

McDuffy remains in the Craighead County Detention Center awaiting a Nov. 23 appearance in circuit court.
