Jacksonville man arrested for drugs
According to Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell, 51 year old Bryan Farmer of Jacksonville was arrested on November 29 following a traffic stop conducted by Searcy County Deputy Troy Dye.
Cassell said Dye stopped Farmer's vehicle after he noticed it going over the centerline. When Dye approached the vehicle he noticed Farmer appeared to be nervous and would not make direct eye contact with Dye. Dye also noticed the passenger moving around in the seat and covering her waist with a jacket.
After checking with the Searcy County Dispatcher concerning the status of Farmer and his passenger, he learned the passenger had a warrant and Farmer had a search waiver on file. When Farmer was asked if there was anything illegal in his vehicle he responded, "Not that I know of."
While searching the vehicle, Dye found a black box that contained a set of scales and four individuals of bags of suspected methamphetamine, a case with a smoking device inside and another bag of suspected methamphetamine.
Dye placed Farmer and his passenger under arrest and transported them to the Searcy County Sheriff's Office where Farmer was charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia and felony possession of meth or cocaine with purpose to deliver GT 10 GM but less than 200 GM. The passenger was not charged.
Farmer was released on December 1. He is currently awaiting his first appearance in the Searcy County Circuit Court.
