An investigation into alleged drug activity on the east side of Pine Bluff on Wednesday resulted in the arrest of two people after police reported finding suspected marijuana and ecstasy.
Frederick Lowe, 26, who is currently on probation and has two cases pending, and Depresha Moten, 31, were taken into custody after police vice and narcotics officers served a search warrant at 1203 E. 46th Ave., at 8:24 a.m.
Deputy Prosecutor Rik Ramsey said during a court hearing Friday that investigators found a one-gallon plastic freezer bag containing 11.4 ounces of suspected marijuana, a bag of pills believed to be ecstasy and methamphetamine and another bag containing 1.2 ounces of suspected marijuana.
Detective Richard McCorvy said in a probable-cause affidavit that investigators also found plastic bags and other components for packaging the suspected drugs.
Because Lowe is on probation and has charges pending, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney agreed to Ramsey’s request and set a $100,000 cash-only bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Lowe with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver.
A $25,000 bond was set for Moten, who had no prior convictions or pending charges, on the same allegations.
Both Lowe and Moten said they would hire their own attorneys.
