In the early morning hours of Wednesday, Nov. 4, a 63-year-old Independence County man driving a motorcycle was pulled over on a traffic stop in the city limits of Oil Trough by Chief Deputy Sheriff Aaron Moody and Deputy Jonathan Brown.
The incident report said as Moody was checking the Arkansas Crime Information Center on the motorcycle driver, identified as Dalvid Anderson Hunter, Hunter pulled Deputy Brown aside and told him that the chief deputy didn’t need to run the check because he (Hunter) had several warrants for his arrests. And he said he was an absconder from probation and parole.
The report also said Hunter told Brown that he had “dope” in his pocket. The deputy instructed Hunter to empty his pockets on the patrol of Moody’s patrol unit.
As Hunter emptied the contents of his pocket, the report said a small baggie containing a white powdery substance — which later field-tested positive for meth — fell into the pile. Hunter also pulled a glass pipe from his front pants pocket.
With evidence in hand, the officers released Hunter pending charges at a later date.
