HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - Police arrested a 64-year-old man suspected of operating a "marijuana smoking room" near a school.
On Monday, following a months-long investigation, Harrisburg police executed a search warrant at a home in the 800-block of Foch Street.
During the search of the home, officers reportedly seized marijuana, digital scales, drug paraphernalia, a gun, and more than $2,800 in cash.
In an outside shed, according to a news release from Poinsett County Sheriff Kevin Molder, officers found more marijuana along with several marijuana pipes and a large bong.
"It appeared the shed was being used as a marijuana smoking room," Molder said.
Officers arrested the homeowner, Ricky Osban, on suspicion of felony trafficking a controlled substance; possession of drug paraphernalia within 1,000 feet of a school; possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance with the intent to deliver; and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms. He's being held at the Poinsett County Detention Center.
Officers also arrested 31-year-old Sheena Chase and 26-year-old Jacob Howe, both of Harrisburg, on suspicion of misdemeanor possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were cited to appear in Harrisburg District Court.
