It was a big week for drug busts in Logan County.

Last week, two drug busts took place in Booneville. One of them was the largest bust ever conducted in the county by the 15th Judicial District Drug Task Force. The two drug busts, in which three people were arrested, resulted on the confiscation of about a pound of suspected methamphetamines.

In the larger of the two busts, a search warrant was executed last Wednesday morning at a Happy Lane residence in Booneville. The search resulted in the confiscation of 354 grams, or 12.5 ounces, of a substance believed to be meth along with more than $600 in cash, suspected marijuana, rolling papers, syringes and scales.

“This was an ongoing investigation,” DTF director Joe Patterson said last week. “It’s being transported in here from California. We had reason to believe they were getting a new supply. We’ve been looking at these people for a while and were able to get a search warrant.

“We took a lot of meth off the street,” he said.

Arrested at the scene were a California man and a local woman. They are beng held on a $150,000 bond.

The drugs have an estimated street value of about $35,000 to $38,000, according to officials.

The lead agency in the bust was the 15th Judicial Drug Task Force and other agencies involved were the Probation and Parole Department and the Arkansas State Police.

A day earlier, the Booneville Police Department assisted Probation and Parole officers in another case in which 28 grams of suspected methamphetamine were seized and a Booneville man was jailed and held on a $25,000 bond.
