Large quantity of meth seized in Jasper

(From the Jasper Police Department)

On Saturday, October 22nd, 2016, a Jasper police officer, assisted by Barton County Sheriff's Office K9 deputy, seized an estimated 4.9 pounds of suspected "ice" (methamphatamine) on the parking lot of a business in Jasper. 

The drugs were seized after a month long investigation by the Jasper Police Dept. and Ozark Drug Enforcement Team, in reference to the sales of methamphetamine. 

An Arkansas man was arrested for trafficking of a controlled substance and will face federal charges for his role in the distribution and delivery of the large amount of drugs. 

An Arkansas woman was also arrested and faces state charges for possession of a controlled substance after suspected cocaine was found in her purse. 

Special thanks to Barton County K-9 Officer Toby Luce, his K-9 "Paw"tna Hondo, and Barton County Sheriff Mitchell Shaw for their willingness to assist in this matter, and the Ozark Drug Task Force for its assistance as well.
