LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR - An Imboden man has been arrested on drug charges after deputies were called to his home to investigate a call about horses that had gotten out.
It happened Christmas night, according to the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office (LCSO).
The LCSO says Michael Barnard, 41, who was suspected of being involved in illegal drug activity, was searched and found to have marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Several items of drug paraphernalia with meth residue were also found inside Barnard's home, according to deputies.
He was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputies had gone to Barnard’s house to tell him his horses were out again and that he needed to fix his fences.
After Barnard and the deputies put the horses back in their pasture, he was taken to the Lawrence County Jail to await a bond hearing.
