traffic stop leads to simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms

On February 7, 2018 at approximately 3:55 PM Deputy Will Doughty was on routine patrol when he noticed a vehicle leaving a known drug house. Deputy Doughty turned around on the vehicle because it didn’t appear to have a license plate on it. Deputy Doughty caught up to the vehicle and it did have a license plate on it but it was not readable because it was dirty. The driver of the vehicle was driving erratically, crossing the center line and the fog line. Deputy Doughty stopped the vehicle and made contact with the driver. Deputy Doughty asked the driver for his license, registration, and proof of insurance. The driver asked the female in the passenger’s seat to hand him the proof of insurance out of the glove box but she was unresponsive. Deputy Doughty leaned over to see why she was responding and noticed an approximately 3 foot long sword between her seat and the console. For safety reasons Deputy Doughty removed the sword from the vehicle. When the driver was asked by the deputy what the females name was, he stated he didn’t know, he only knew her as “Cat”. The female passenger was still unresponsive so Deputy Doughty called for an ambulance to evaluate her. While waiting on an ambulance Deputy Doughty looked into her purse to try to find out if she had any medical history and her identification. While looking for identification and medical history Deputy Doughty found a small clear baggie containing a crystal like substance (Methamphetamines). EMT’s transported the female to St. Vincent’s in Morrilton because she appeared to be under a heavy influence of drugs.
During a pat down of the driver a pipe with green vegetable matter was found in his front left pocket. As an incident to arrest an inventory of the vehicle was done. During the inventory a long rifle was found along with green vegetable substance (Marijuana), a plastic container containing a crystal like substance (Methamphetamines), a syringe with watery substance (Methamphetamines), along with two more smoking devices with green vegetable substance (Marijuana) in them. The driver was placed under arrest and charged with simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms a class Y felony, two counts of possession of a controlled substance (Methamphetamines) class D felonies, possession of drug paraphernalia (syringe) a class D felony, possession of a controlled substance (Marijuana) a class A misdemeanor, three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia (smoking devices) class A misdemeanors. The female was later released from the hospital and was arrested for simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, a class Y felony. She was also charged with possession of controlled substance (Methamphetamines), a class D felonies.
I would like to commend Deputy Will Doughty, good police work like this is what it's going to take to get rid of the drugs in our county.-- Sheriff Scott Montgomery
