Trumann police arrest ten in undercover operation
The Trumann Police Department arrested ten people Friday morning on drug charges resulting from an undercover investigation.
According to Trumann Police Chief Chad Henson, the department deployed an undercover officer over the past several months who made several narcotic purchases and provided information to detectives. Arrest warrants were obtained and served during an early morning operation that netted ten arrests, 15.2 grams of methamphetamine, 4.5 grams of marijuana, and $3,823 seized.
Those arrested in Operation Tainted Pill include: Jeremy Wilson, 29, possession of a controlled substance (pills) without a prescription; John Armstrong, 33, possession of drug paraphernalia; Edward Williams, 46, possession of a controlled substance (pills) without a prescription; John Adams, 29, possession of drug paraphernalia; Camellia Foxx, 38, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia; Shannon Holtorf, 33, delivery of methamphetamine; Terry Dodson, 28, delivery of methamphetamine, possession with intent to deliver, and possession of drug paraphernalia; Antonio Gonzales, 45, two counts of delivery of methamphetamine; Terry Fletcher, 50, two counts of delivery of methamphetamine; and Amber Elrod, 31, delivery of methamphetamine.
"Trumann is not immune to the problems other communities are facing with methamphetamine and prescription pills," said Chief Henson. "We are fed up, like every other community, seeing good people and families hurt by these drugs. We will continue to deploy every legal option available to us, including undercover officers, nuisance abatements, and collaborations with other agencies."
Arkansas State Police and Arkansas Probation and Parole assisted in the operation.
