Man arrested on a dozen charges after lying to deputies | Crime
If you’re going to lie about your identity, make sure police don’t know you.
When Izard County sheriff’s deputies stopped Jaycob Anderson on a traffic violation last week the 18-year-old Bexar man gave a false name, according to Sheriff Tate Lawrence. But, officers knew him well.
Anderson was initially charged with obstruction of governmental operations and having no driver’s license.
Eventually, he would be charged with another misdemeanor and 9 felonies after deputies searched the motel room in Calico Rock where he had been staying for most of the week.
According to the sheriff, officers found several plastic bags of marijuana, meth, prescription pills and an assortment of drug paraphernalia.
The search also turned up two semi-automatic pistols and $3,813 in suspected “drug money,” the sheriff said.
Anderson was charged with operating a drug premises, possession with the purpose to deliver a controlled substance near a certain facility (elementary school), possession of meth, possession with intent to deliver a Schedule VI narcotic, possession of oxycodone, possession with the intent of use drug paraphernalia to ingest meth, possession of drug paraphernalia to package or repackage methamphetamine, possession of a prescribed narcotic outside the original container, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, possession with intent to use drug paraphernalia to ingest marijuana.
Anderson is currently being held in the Izard County Detention Center in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
Arkansas State Police and members of the 16th Judicial District Drug Task Force assisted in the search and arrest.
