JONESBORO — The sight of a 2003 GMC Envoy pulling a heavy duty dump bed trailer at around 4 a.m. made officers suspicious.
Jeremy Parnell, an agent for the 2nd Judicial District Drug Task Force, said the tandem axle trailer was extremely heavy and “had the SUV squatted in the rear end quite a bit.”
While they initially thought the driver may be driving stolen property, it turned out he owned the vehicle.
However, police also determined two passengers owned illegal drugs.
On Monday, Craighead County District Judge David Boling found probable cause to charge Donna Gail Carpenter, 57, and Monica M. Ivy, 36, both of Jonesboro, with felony possession of 4.8 grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Carpenter also faces misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Their bonds were set at $5,000 each.
Carpenter is on felony probation, which prompted police to search her belongings, Parnell wrote in a probable cause affidavit.

Robert Sheffield, 56, of Jonesboro, possession of meth with the purpose to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia with the purpose to package; $30,000 bond.
