Calico Rock woman faces drug charges

Thursday, June 29, 2006

A Calico Rock woman is facing drug-related charges after authorities said they found marijuana during a search of her residence.

Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence, investigator James Humphries, deputies Michael Darr and Kristy Robbins, along with two agents from the 16th Judicial Drug Task Force searched the home of Connie Sue Davis, 40, of Calico Rock on June 13. The officers searched the home after obtaining a search warrant based on probable illegal activity which could be substantiated, Lawrence said.

During the search of the residence officers found 1.8 ounces of green vegetable matter, determined to be marijuana, according to authorities. Digital scales and several items of drug paraphernalia were also found in the residence, authorities said.

Davis was not home at the time of the search. She turned herself in June 19 at the Izard County Sheriff's Office.

Davis is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, a class C felony; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class C felony.

Authorities arrested Davis June 19. Davis posted bond in the amount of $2,500 and was released from the Izard County Detention Facility. A court date is set for July 10 for a hearing.

Phyllis Ann Beavers, 37, of Calico Rock faces theft of property charges after an Izard County deputy observed her in the act, Lawrence said.

Beavers, a resident of Moser Trailer Park, is accused of entering the house of a neighbor and taking money from a bedroom. As Beavers exited through a window of the residence, Izard County Deputy Matt Churchwell observed her carrying a large amount of change rolled up in her outer garments, he said. Lawrence said the change amounted to between $20 to $25.

Churchwell arrested Beavers at her home June 16. Beavers posted bond in the amount of $2,500 on June 17 and was released from the Izard County Detention Facility.

Beavers is charged with breaking and entering, a class D felony; and theft of property, a class D misdemeanor. Beavers' court date is set for July 10 for a hearing.
