Judge raises bond for phone blunder

JONESBORO — A drug possession suspect had his bond raised Monday after he failed to provide a working phone number to authorities.

Curtis Baker, 53, of Jonesboro, was spotted on Feb. 10 in a parked vehicle as Jonesboro police responded to a “shots heard” call in the Griffin Street area, according to the probable cause affidavit.

“Officer (Dalynn) Johnson knew Baker to be a known drug user. While Officer Johnson was speaking with Baker, he became nervous with heavy breathing,” it read. “Officer Johson gained consent to search Baker’s person and vehicle.”

Johnson found 1 gram of meth in a plastic bag and Baker was subsequently arrested, the document states. After he was transported to the Craighead County Detention Center, the officer noticed meth on the back seat.

A torn plastic bag and 0.4 grams of meth were found in the patrol vehicle.

District Court Judge Tommy Fowler found probable cause to charge Baker with possession of meth less than 2 grams and tampering with physical evidence. Baker, who appeared in court by phone, could not be contacted via the phone number he provided to police.

A recorded message from Verizon Wireless said the call couldn’t be completed due to “caller restrictions.” Baker was reached because “he called randomly,” a local bondsman said.

Because of that, Fowler raised the $1,500 temporary bond Baker was released on to $3,500, cash or surety.

The judge also found probable cause and set bonds for the following:

Jamison Beshiers, 40, of Jonesboro, possession of meth less than 2 grams, driving while intoxicated on drugs, open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle; bond set at $5,000, cash or surety.

Derek Bushong, 39, of Jonesboro, possession of meth less than 2 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of clonazepam less than 28 grams; bond set at $17,500, cash or surety.

Royal Gibson, 43, of Trumann, possession of meth less than 2 grams, driving on a suspended license; bond set at $1,500, cash or surety.

Shelby Hoke, 26, of Brookland, possession of meth less than 2 grams; bond set at $2,500, cash or surety.

Dennis Madison, 44, of Jonesboro, possession of meth more than 2 grams but less than 10 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana less than 4 ounces, obstructing governmental operations, driving on a suspended license; bond set at $15,000, cash or surety.

Jeramie Mann, 47, of Bono, felony and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of Xanax less than 28 grams; bond set at $1,500, cash or surety.
