Blytheville Arrest Nets 22 Pounds of Pot

MARCH 17, 2006 - Posted at 1:04 p.m. CST

 

BLYTHEVILLE, AR - Police in Blytheville confiscated 22 pounds of marijuana last night following a non-routine traffic stop in the parking lot of a local motel.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., a Blytheville patrol unit was exiting the parking lot of the Royal Inn on south Division Street when another vehicle entered a separate drive into the parking lot.  CID Commander Dave Flora says the other car's lights were not on and it almost collided with the police cruiser. 

At that point, Flora says the driver of the car then exited his vehicle, locked it, and began yelling at officers in an abusive manner.  When officers attempted to calm the man, he became further agitated and police then attempted to subdue him.  Flora says the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Michael Dority of Blytheville, then resisted arrest and a struggle ensued.  Dority was eventually subdued and taken into custody.  Police then gained entry into his vehicle, where they allegedly found up to 22 pounds of marijuana.

Dority is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and driving with a suspended license.
