A Paragould man faces several charges after deputies reportedly discovered drugs and guns during a parole home visit.

On March 21, Greene County sheriff’s deputies and an officer with the Arkansas Department of Community Correction Probation and Parole Division visited a home on County Road 435 in Marmaduke.
