Arkansas and Tennessee Men Face Multiple Charges After Lindseyville Incident
Darren Doyle, story:
Two men have been arrested and face felony drug charges after they attempted to sell steaks door-to-door, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff's Office said they received a complaint on March 28th from a resident on Lindseyville Loop who said two men knocked on the resident's door but when the resident didn't answer, the men tried to open the door.
Authorities said they responded to the area where a neighbor gave a description of the vehicle and pointed law enforcement to a residence where the men were supposedly last seen. Deputies said they located the vehicle along with Christopher Brown, (49) of Smyrna, TN, and Bret Withers, (37) of Crossett, AR, where the men said they were selling steaks out of a freezer in their truck, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Deputies said they detected the odor of marijuana and a search of the truck resulted in the discovery of suspected marijuana, syringes, spoons with suspected meth residue, and a prescription blank for the drug Klonopin, a controlled substance which was prescribed to neither occupant.
Brown was arrested and charged with Public Intoxication of controlled substance (excludes alcohol), Possession of marijuana, Drug paraphernalia, and Illegal possession of a prescription blank for a controlled substance-1st offense.
Withers was arrested and charged with Possession of controlled substance-1st degree-drug unspecified, Possession of marijuana, Drug paraphernalia, and Public intoxication of controlled substance (excludes alcohol).
Both men were transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail. Each is being held on a $10,000 cash bond, according to jail records.
