Police find suspected drugs after serving search warrant


Twenty-four grams of suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia were seized Monday morning and one person was arrested after police served a search warrant an an apartment on the east side of Pine Bluff.

Vice and Narcotics Detective Kenneth Evans said in a probable cause affidavit that officers detained Marc Davis, 44, after they forced entry into the apartment in the 1100 block of East 36th Avenue at 11:30 a.m.

Evans said in the affidavit agents from the Tri-County Drug Task Force assisted police vice and narcotics officers in serving the warrant.

A small bag containing suspected marijuana was found in a sofa in the living room, and a larger bag of suspected marijuana was found in a vehicle registered to Davis.

Evans said in the affidavit that investigators also found a set of digital scales in a cabinet in the kitchen.

On Wednesday, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $10,000 bond for Davis after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent Davis.
