CLEBURNE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Authorities say that a Cleburne County man was distributing nearly a pound of meth a month.

Now, the man is facing a multitude of charges after a several months-long investigation in Cleburne County.

According to a media release from the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office, Larry Taylor of Heber Springs was arrested in connection with a July 31 search warrant being served in Heber Springs.

Sheriff Chris Brown said in the release that authorities began investigating Taylor earlier this year after getting reports about illegal drugs being sold out of a house on South 5th Street in Heber Springs.

Deputies, as well as the 16th Judicial Drug Task Force, were able to get enough evidence to get a warrant to search the premises, Brown said.

"The search resulted in the seizure of just over two ounces (approximately 60 grams) of methamphetamine, along with some drug paraphernalia and prescription pills," Brown said. "The search also led to the recovery of several stolen guns."

Taylor was arrested on suspicion of possession of meth with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, maintaining a drug premises and theft by receiving.
