Little Rock man arrested for weapons and drugs

Posted: October 1, 2012 - 3:25pm

A 26-year-old Little Rock man was arrested in Conway late Friday night after a search of his vehicle revealed drugs, weapons and other suspicious items.

An on-duty officer initiated a traffic stop on the red, 2001 Ford Ranger driven by Chancey Lee Piercefield on Oak Street after discovering the truck had fictitious tags.

According to the report, the man told police he did not have any insurance on the truck and had recently acquired the vehicle from his uncle.

When asked to step out of the vehicle, Piercefield reportedly “seemed nervous,” but consented to a search of his person.

During the search, the officer discovered a metal canister containing a small amount of marijuana in the man’s front shirt pocket.

Piercefield was then placed into handcuffs while the vehicle was searched.

From the inside of the vehicle, officers recovered a 9mm Beretta and a magazine with 15 rounds, three syringes, a throwing star, marijuana, a digital scale, a smoking device, numerous routers, an antique camera, an old fire extinguisher, a generator and other small electronic devices.

Piercefield reportedly admitted to using methamphetamine when asked about the syringes.

He also told police that a friend had given the gun to him and that its purpose was “for his protection,” but later admitted that he was on his way to his girlfriend’s house because her husband “had beat her” and he thought he may have needed the gun to help her “get away from him.”

A check of the gun’s serial number revealed the gun had been reported stolen out of Arkoma Police Department in Oklahoma.

Piercefield was processed at Conway Police Department. Officers were unable to make contact with Piercefield’s parole officer, but after pulling his arrest record, discovered the man had been found guilty of kidnapping in 2009.

Piercefield was charged for felon in possession of a firearm, theft by receiving, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and fictitious tags.

His vehicle was removed from the scene by a wrecker service, and all evidence was logged and secured.

The syringes, suspected marijuana and firearm were sent off to the state crime lab for further analysis.

My guess is...

...the police will soon determine that most (if not all) of those items were stolen in an attempt to feed his drug habit.
