Beebe Police Chief Wayne Ballew released the following information regarding felony drug charges on a local woman.  On Sunday, June  29th, 2014, Investigator Josh Middleton and Patrol Officer Quintin Eads effected the arrest of Tifani T. Fowler, 32, at her residence on Elm Street in Beebe.   A felony warrant had  been issued for Fowler’s arrest for “Maintaining a Drug Premises”.  The officers viewed what was suspected to be drug paraphernalia in the residence at the time of her arrest.

The Searcy Department of Human Services (DHS) were notified of the arrest and suspected drug paraphernalia and dispatched a Case Worker to the scene. As a result, Fowler’s two small children (both under the age of 3) were taken into DHS custody. Fowler was removed from her home and taken to the White County Detention Center and incarcerated in lieu of a $5000.00 bond regarding the drug premises warrant. She later was released after posting the bond.

Subsequently, a Search Warrant was issued for Fowler’s home.
