JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police charged two Jonesboro residents with five felonies each after they found them in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Jonesboro police were dispatched to the 3500-block of Cheshier Street Sunday afternoon in reference to suspicious activity.
The 911 caller said two people were removing items and the license plate from a vehicle parked on the side of the road.
A probable cause affidavit states Officer Nathan Ivy came into contact with Bodey Hanley and Barbara Washburn as they were carrying several items removed from the vehicle.
"As Officer Ivy made contact with them, Hanley began attempting to hide a wooden box from the officer's view behind his leg," court documents state.
Ivy ran both suspects through dispatch and found Hanley to be on probation for 4 Failure to Appear warrants. Hanley was arrested and placed in Ivy's patrol car.
"Officer Ivy returned to the front of the vehicle where Washburn was still standing and now noticed that Washburn was holding the wooden box that Hanley was previously attempting to conceal from his view," the affidavit states.
Inside the box, Ivy found 31 grams of suspected methamphetamine in 5 separate baggies, 4 grams of suspected marijuana, 44 - 30mg tablets of Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride, 3 - 50mg tablets of Quetiapine Fumarate, 5 - 50mg tablets of Tramadol, 16 - 1mg tablets of green Clonazepam and 39 - 1mg tablets of blue Clonazepam. The box also contained a broken meth pipe and a set of digital scales.
Hanley and Washburn were each charged with 5 drug related felonies, including possession of meth or cocaine with intent to deliver and possession with the intent to manufacture.
Hanley's bond was set at $25,000. Washburn's bond was set at $7,500.
Both suspects will be back in court on April 20.
