Beebe Police Seize $1,000 Worth of Meth in Aug. 23 Traffic StopAug 29th, 2013 | By admin | Category: Top Story
Beebe Police Captain Eddie Cullum released the following information concerning the seizure of approximately $1,000.00 of methamphetamine.
On Friday, August 23rd, at 4:24 p.m., Investigator Josh Middleton stopped a 1995 Dodge pick up truck with two male subjects for an equipment violation on West College Street near the intersection of North Main. The driver and owner of the pickup was identified as Kevin Attendorn, 50, of Cabot. The passenger in the vehicle appeared to be very nervous and had been told by Middleton twice to keep his hands in plainview. The passenger dropped his right hand a third time and appeared to be reaching in his pant’s pocket. The officer then walked to the rear of the pickup and noticed the passenger had turned around in the seat and was watching him and it appeared that he was leaning over in the seat. At that point Investigator Middleton ordered the man from the vehicle, placed him in handcuffs for his safety and radioed for a back up officer.
Captain Cullum and Patrol Officer Misty Goss responded to the scene. Further investigation revealed that the passenger was Jeffrey T. Fisher, 46, of Beebe and that he had put six plastic bags, of a substance later field-tested positive for methamphetamine, between the seat and console of the truck just prior to being ordered out of the vehicle. Estimated total weight of the six bags is approximately ten (10) grams with a street value of $1,000.00. Officers also found that Fisher had a no bond pick up order issued by the White County Circuit Court for violation of a previous court order.
Fisher was arrested for “Possession of methamphetamine for the purpose to deliver” and transported to the White County Detention Center in Searcy and held in lieu of a $15,000.00 bond along with the no bond Circuit Court order. Attendorn was not charged and was apparently unaware that Fisher had any controlled substance with him.
