Drug bust yields three suspects

In a combined effort between the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department and the Conway Police Department’s drug task force resulted in the arrest of three suspects during a drug bust on Thursday night.
Officers from both units searched a residence located at 265 Highway 65 North, finding powdered and crack cocaine, marijuana, a handgun and approximately $4,000 in cash.
The tenants of the home were arrested and transported to the Faulkner County Detention Center.
Henry Allen Watson, 22, Brittany Cunningham, 21 and Marcus DeWayne Kilgore, 28, all of Conway, were cited with charges ranging from possession of a controlled substance to possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to distribute.
Captain Matt Rice with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department said the amount of drugs found was a lot for one residence.
“The amount of drugs found at the home is a pretty good amount for just one residence,” he said. Adding, “The investigation only lasted about a week.”
Both males arrested in the bust were on parole from the Arkansas Department of Corrections.
