KEISER, AR -- Keiser Police Chief Jimmy Bohannon, Jr. was arrested in Osceola by the Osceola Police Department last night around 6:30.
Following a brief investigation by Osceola officers, as well as those with the Arkansas State Police and Mississippi County Sheriff's Department, 37-year-old Bohannon is charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance believed to be prescription narcotics and one count of burglary & theft.
He is being held in the Osceola jail on a $150,000 bond. For a small town like Keiser it's a tough situation to deal with.
"It's really sad if all these allegations are true, we all worry about illegal drugs and methamphetamines but a lot of people don't realize what pharmaceuticals do," said mayor Debbie Little, "I don't know that is just allegations and like I said it is an ongoing investigation."
