Man on probation arrested on new charges


By Ray King

A Humphrey man who is currently on probation was arrested after marijuana and a handgun that had been reported stolen were found in his vehicle.

Keisan Camp, 26, is on probation in Howard County on drug related charges, Deputy Prosecutor Cymber Tadlock said during a court hearing Friday.

Camp was arrested after Pine Bluff Police Sgt. Sabrina Washington responded to an alarm at the ATM at Relyance Bank at 5501 S. Olive St. Washington reported seeing a tan Cadillac XTS leaving the machine and conducted a traffic stop to see if the vehicle had been involved in the alarm

Tadlock said Washington reported the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, which was driven by Camp and when she asked Camp about the odor, he said he had a medical marijuana card which he produced, along with his driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance.

Detective Jason Boykin reported that the gun had been reported stolen in Conway and when Camp was interviewed, he said he bought the gun from a friend for protection because his aunt’s house had been shot up.

The weight of the marijuana was 16.3 grams, Tadlock said.

Because Camp is on probation, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 cash only bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge him with being a felon in possession of a firearm and with theft by receiving.  Camp was told to come back to court Jan. 10.
