Police confiscate 44 grams of cocaine

The Conway Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics team conducted two search warrants and confiscated 44 grams of cocaine Tuesday.

Four women were arrested following the searches, which were conducted on 709 South Davis St. and 404 South Ash St.

CPD spokesman LaTresha Woodruff said the department is always working to get drugs off the streets.

“The Conway Police Department Narcotics Division keeps pretty busy,” she said. “The group sometimes gets those spontaneous cases where people call in about drug activity or they may develop and work cases for weeks, months, even years but you can bet there is never any downtime.”

The searches were conducted “one after the other,” Woodruff said.

Lacey Reeves and Samantha Green, both 21, of 709 South Davis St. are facing felony drug charges after investigators found marijuana, prescription medication and 16 grams of cocaine at the residence.

Alyasha Bates, 23, and Mary Toney, 57, of 404 South Ash St. were arrested after investigators found marijuana and 28 grams of cocaine at the residence. Bates faces felony drug charges. Toney faces misdemeanor charges.
