FORDYCE, AR -- The 13th Judicial Drug Task Force, along with several other Arkansas law enforcement agencies, arrested six people and are looking for one more after executing a narcotics warrant sweep Wednesday morning.

The task force says officers from multiple agencies conducted the warrant sweep, which yielded more than 5 ounces of crack-cocaine, a pistol, three vehicles and nearly $300 in cash.

Officers executed two warrants simultaneously around 6:30 Wednesday morning at residences on Calhoun County Road 72 and the 1200 block of West Third Street in Fordyce.

Jason Jimerson, 41, was arrested after officers found cash and more than 5 ounces of crack-cocaine in the residence on Calhoun County Road. According to the task force, the estimated street value of the recovered drugs is $14,000. Jimerson was charged with possession of crack-cocaine with purpose to deliver, maintaining a drug premisis and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The search executed on West Third Street in Fordyce turned up a 9mm pistol and resulted in the arrest of 28-year-old Desmond Childs, who was charged with possession of a firearm by a certain person and possession of an instrument of crime.

Arrest teams then began going after individuals with drug warrants, including Eric Matlock, who escaped officers on foot after they showed up to his work. Police say he is currently on bond from a previous drug arrest, and is now wanted for delivery of methamphetamine, use of a communication device to facilitate a crime and fleeing.

Anyone with information on Matlock's whereabouts is encouraged to contact local law enforcement.

Individual warrants were then served on the following suspects, who were arrested on the listed charges:

Seneca Mathews, 31 - Delivery of methamphetamine


Angel Ankney, 25 - Conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine


Ivie Harris, Jr., 31 - Delivery of methamphetamine
                        - Delivery of crack-cocaine


Lamar Chavis, 31 - Delivery of methamphetamine
