Marshall Police Chief Lang Holland reported on October 30 that his department had been contacted by the Briarwood Apartment's management concerning Jonathan and Ashley Manning who allegedly broke into Apartment 48.
Holland stopped the Mannings at the intersection of Plum Street and Hwy. 65. During the stop, Holland learned that Manning was wanted on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear, the original charge being theft of property. His bond was cash only. Manning was transported to the Searcy County Detention Center by Officer Daniel Terherst.
During the investigation, Holland learned that the Mannings had been evicted from the Briarwood apartment and were not supposed to be there. In the apartment, Holland found two rifles and a rolled up piece of paper that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Jonathan Manning is currently being held on a probation violation. He was charged with possession of firearms by certain persons, breaking or entering and possession of drug paraphernalia. Ashley Manning was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
