Missouri man arrested for drugs


According to Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell, 44 year old Gimadiha Scrogom was arrested on June 20 following a traffic stop conducted on Hwy. 65N.

During the initial stop, deputies learned Scrogom was driving without his license and was on parole for grand theft auto. At this time, Arkansas State Trooper Garett Brock arrived to provide backup and at the deputy's request ran Scrogom information through the crime information computer system while the deputy investigated an odor coming from the vehicle.

The deputy enlisted the assistance of his K-9 partner, Vader, who conducted a free air sniff of the vehicle and alerted to the odor of narcotics coming from the vehicle. After making Scrogom aware that Vader alerted to the smell of narcotics coming from the vehicle, Scrogom admitted there was CBD in the vehicle.

While performing a search of the vehicle, law enforcement found a glass container with a green leafy substance inside, rubber container that also contained the green leafy substance, glass smoking device that contained a crystal-like substance, syringes in the passenger seat and a glass smoking device under the driver's seat. After testing the crystal-like substance with a Nar Tec field test kit, it tested positive for crystal methamphetamine.

Scrogom was transported to the Searcy County Detention Center where he was charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia to ingest or to inhale meth/cocaine; misdemeanor possession of a Class LT 4 oz. marijuana; misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia; misdemeanor fictitious tags; defective equipment; and being an habitual offender.
