Duo Arrested for Intent to Deliver Over 300 Illegal Prescription Pills

May 17th, 2010 by

According to Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober, the Sheriff’s Department received information that a vehicle carrying a large amount of prescription medicine had left Pine Bluff and was traveling to the Monticello area.

Authorities set up surveillance at the variou locations leading to Monticello, and observed the vehicle  on Highway 35 North traveling towards Monticello, where it continued until it stopped at EZ-Mart on Highway 425 South.

The occupants got out of the vehicle and were then approached by authorities. Deputies observed two open containers of alcohol located in the console of the vehicle. When asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle, the driver, Kenneth W. Reed, age 33 of Rison, stated that there was a loaded handgun under the driver’s seat. Authorities recovered a loaded 40-caliber handgun. A further search of the vehicle led to the discovery of eight pill bottles containing 245 doses of Hydrocodone pills, 14.5 Oxycodone pills, and 43 Xanax pills.

Reed and his passenger, Michael Tyrone Rogers, age 29 of Pine Bluff, were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms.

District Ken Harper issued a $20,000 bond on Reed and a $5,000 bond on Rogers. At the time of this press release both subjects remain in the Drew County Detention Facility. According to Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober,

“The total street value of the pills was approximately $1,800.”

    good job bonds should have much greater

  3. Karen says:

    Sure glad this was stopped before it ended up on the streets.
    One thing I just don’t understand is why such a low bond on these
    two? Shouldn’t the bond be higher? They’ll be back out on the
    street before you know it “selling” their drugs!:(
