disturbance call leads arrest of Knoxville, AR

Sheriff Scott Montgomery reported that on July 29, 2018 at approximately 12:30 AM Deputies Will Doughty, Nick Kincaid, and Nathan Williams responded to a report of an individual in Casa who was acting disturbed and disorderly.

Upon arrival Deputy Williams observed a white female at the end of Casa-Aplin road and State Hwy 10 West, the female was holding a black wallet in her right hand and a cell phone in her left hand, she stated that she was waiting on a friend to come and pick her and her husband up. Deputy Williams proceeded to the original call, upon arrival Deputies Doughty and Kincaid. After the call as Deputy Williams was going back towards Hwy 10 he noticed that white female that he had encountered earlier walking towards the ditch on the east side of the road. When the female saw Deputy Williams coming she turned around and walked back towards Hwy 10. As Deputy Williams approached the female he noticed a black wallet laying on the east side of Casa-Aplin Road. He stopped his patrol unit and picked up the wallet and asked the female if it was hers, she stated that she had never seen it before. Inside the wallet was a white crystal like substance (Methamphetamines) in a clear sandwich bag. Deputy Williams advised the female (Shawna Lang) that when he approached her earlier that she had that wallet in her right hand. Lang stated that the wallet was her husbands (Anthony Cerda, 44 yrs old of Knoxville, AR). Mr. Cerda was questioned and he stated that he had thrown the wallet in the woods before the Deputies arrival and he suspected his wife went and found it. Deputy Williams asked Mr. Cerda to describe his wallet, “he stated that it was black with a green crown royal bag inside of it and that it had meth in it, also it has a blue bandana in the wallet containing a meth pipe in it.” Deputy Williams tested him by saying it had a purple bag inside the wallet. Mr. Cerda replied, “like hell it does, it’s in a green bag”. Mr. Cerda was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamines (15 grams), a class B Felony and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class D Felony.
