On September 3, 2017 at approximately 11:50 PM Deputy Nathan Williams conducted a traffic stop on a white Dodge pick-up for not having a license plate light. After making the traffic stop and further investigation Deputy Williams found that none of the people in the pick-up had a valid driver’s license.

The driver, David Edwards gave Deputy Williams consent to search. As one of the passengers was getting out of the pick-up Deputy Williams noticed that he dropped something. Deputy Williams then did a pat down of that subject (Michael McKenzie, 35 years old of Houston), he found nothing on him. Then Deputy Williams went to see what he dropped and it was a Meth pipe and some rolling papers. McKenzie admitted the items was his, he was arrested and charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Trooper Jake Farnam was on scene as well and he spoke with one of the passengers Ashley Richardson, 30 years old of London, AR. Trooper Farnam advised her that he smelled a strong odor of Marijuana and he asked her if she was in possession of any Marijuana, at that time Ashley handed him a Marijuana cigarette from her bra. At that time Trooper Farnam asked her if there was anything else in her bra and advised her that the Jailer would search her at the Jail and if she had anything illegal on her she would be charged with bringing contraband into the Jail, at that time she pulled out a small sock from her bra and threw it on the ground. A glass pipe came out of the sock as it hit the ground it broke. Richardson was arrested and charged with two counts of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of a Controlled Substance. McKenzie and Richardson are being held at the Perry County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
