FCSO, ASP assist in federal investigation

The execution of warrants early Friday morning at a Mayflower residence resulted in the confiscation of various contraband and the arrest of multiple subjects, officials say.

Deputies with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office and investigators with the Arkansas State Police assissted FBI agents in the execution of a warrant issued for several suspects with federal indictments for their arrest around 6:45 a.m. Friday at 1 Carter Loop in Mayflower, following an investigation into the alleged distribution of narcotics and weapons.

State police also executed a search warrant at the residence and recovered nearly 18 grams of crystal methamphetamine, a sawed-off shotgun, several stolen items including a camper, counterfeit money and other miscellaneous contraband. 

The indictment is sealed, FCSO Chief Deputy Matt Rice said Monday, so details on the number of people arrested and their identities cannot be disclosed.

Rice confirmed that “several” suspects were taken into custody. “We got everybody we were looking for,” Rice said. “Beyond that, I can’t say much.”
