Lake City Man Arrested on Porn and Weapons-Related Charges

LAKE CITY, AR - A Lake City man was arrested this morning after Craighead County Sheriff's deputies and officers with the Newport Police Department served a search warrant at his home.

According to detective Justin Rowland of the Sheriff's Department, the warrant was served at approximately 11 a.m. at the home of Jerry Brown, at 306 Catfish Drive.

Rowland says Brown is accused of distributing pornographic material (DVDs) to his ex-wife's workplace in Newport.

When the warrant was served, officers seized Brown's computer, approximately 10 to 15 firearms, and a substance believed to be crystal methamphetamine.

It is not yet clear what exact charges Brown faces, although he is expected to face drug and weapons-related charges in Craighead County. The investigation is being jointly conducted by the Newport PD and Craighead County Sheriff's Department.

Meanwhile, K8 News has since learned that Newport authorities are also searching for Brown's girlfriend, who is believed responsible for actually distributing the "obscene material."  Her name has not been released.
