Man accused of leaving drugs in deputy's car | Crime
A Region 8 man is being held on a $30,000 cash bond after investigators say he left a bag of drugs in the back of a deputy’s car.
Kirk Alan Hutchinson, 47, of Melbourne was arrested last week on an Izard County warrant for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and tampering with physical evidence.
The charges stem from an earlier incident when Hutchinson was brought to the sheriff’s office.
According to Sheriff Tate Lawrence, after Hutchinson was released it was discovered that he had “deposited the illegal substance in the back of a deputy’s vehicle used to transport Hutchinson.”
Hutchinson is in the Izard County Detention Facility awaiting a July 8 appearance in Izard County Circuit Court.
