Trio arrested in Searcy County

  Three Harrison residents were arrested in Searcy County after Searcy County Deputy Joey Baysinger noticed their vehicle weaving back and forth on the roadway.

  Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell reported that as Baysinger pulled the vehicle over he noticed it contained the driver and two passengers. After explaining the reason for the stop, Baysinger asked all three for identification.

  After running their information through the crime information system, Baysinger learned the driver, 47 year old Daniel Nathen Scott of Harrison had a valid arrest warrant out of the Harrison Police Department. He also learned that passenger, Jacueline Martin, age 49 of Harrison, had a valid arrest warrant out of Taney County, Missouri. The second passenger, Allison Martin, age 19, of Harrison had a valid arrest warrant out of the Harrison Police Department.

  With the assistance of Marshall Police Officer Kevin Ward, Baysinger placed the trio under arrest and while doing a vehicle inventory located a case with two needles, a container that held a bag with a crystal like substance inside and a straw which is commonly used to snort drugs.

  All three were transported to the Searcy County Detention Center for booking. When getting out of the police vehicle, Scott dropped a bottle that also contained a white crystal substance. After testing the substance with a Nar Tec test field kit, it tested positive for methamphetamine.

  Scott was charged with possession of a controlled substance, Class D felony; furnishing prohibited articles, Class C felony; and careless and prohibited driving, Class U misdemeanor. Allison Martin was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia to ingest, inhale, etc., Class D felony. Jacueline Martin was held arrest and held on her outstanding warrant out of Taney County, MO.
