An arrest warrant has been issued for a Newport man, and authorities are asking the court to revoke his probation.
According to court information, Daniel Loyd Renfrow, 31, entered a guilty plea on Dec. 18, 2018, to possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia — both felonies.
Renfrow was placed on a total of 60 months probation. His probation was subject to certain conditions, some of which his probation officer alleges Renfrow violated.
Conditions Renfrow apparently violated include:
- On July 6, 2020, Renfrow failed to report his scheduled office visit with authorities.
- Court docs note Renfrow admitted to authorities that he ingested meth on July 10, 2020.
- Renfrow was drug-tested, and tested positive for meth and other drugs.
- Being arrested in Newport on July 27, 2020, and charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia to consume meth. On the same day, Renfrow was found to be in association with a convicted felon.
- And authorities say Renfrow owes over $3,400 in fines and has not made a good faith effort to pay those fines as ordered by the court to do so.
Prosecutors have filed charges in Independence County Circuit Court asking for probation revocation and for Renfrow to be again tried on charges of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Judge Chaney Taylor is not allowing bail for Renfrow.
