Gun, meth seized

during search

JONESBORO — A man faces up to life in prison after a loaded gun and meth were found on him during a probation search.

Investigator Bryan Bailey wrote in reports that he received a tip that Larry Waters, 45, of Jonesboro, had a gun and illegal drugs in his possession. He conducted a probation search at a gas station near the intersection of Main Street and Johnson Avenue.

From an SUV, officers seized a .380 pistol and a used meth pipe, the incident report states. Waters told Bailey that he was “a user” in possession of meth and marijuana in his shoe. Logged into evidence were 3.4 grams of meth and 0.8 grams of marijuana.

District Court Judge David Boling found probable cause to charge Waters with simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of meth greater than 2 grams but less than 10 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana less than 4 ounces.

His bond was set at $50,000, cash or surety.

Labradoodle

reported stolen

JONESBORO — A man reportedly busted through a woman’s window and stole her labradoodle, Gus, in the 2100 block of Manchester Drive.

The suspect, 43, also damaged two TVs, two glass tables, an electric fireplace and four picture frames, Jonesboro police reported. If arrested, the man faces charges of residential burglary, first-degree criminal mischief and theft of property from a building.

In another report, windows were damaged by gunfire Thursday at Dollar Tree, 2917 E. Nettleton Ave.

The store manager told an officer that a window on the north side of the building was shattered. The officer noticed several broken windows on the east side of the store.

“All the windows appeared to have small holes in them consistent with a pellet of (a) BB gun. The store did not have cameras so there is no suspect information at this time,” Officer Jordan Fowler wrote.
