Two Hensley residents were arrested Saturday on drug related charges.
Whitney Kimbell, 33, and William Robertson, 34, were taken into custody after Redfield Police stopped a vehicle Robertson was driving at 3:50 a.m. because the vehicle had a broken and defective taillight.
During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Shana Alexander said Robertson had a felony warrant from Scott County Missouri and Kimbell had a misdemeanor warrant from Arkansas.
Redfield Police Detective Teri Patterson reported that officers found a clear plastic baggie containing a pipe with suspected methamphetamine in the center console and a glass pipe with suspected methamphetamine in a jacket in the back seat.
When Kimbell was questioned, she said the pipe and suspected methamphetamine in the center console were hers but said the pipe and methamphetamine were not hers. Robertson denied any knowledge of the drugs.
Alexander said the suspected methamphetamine in the center console weighed 5.7 grams and the suspected methamphetamine in the jacket weighed 6.27 grams. Both substances tested positive for methamphetamine.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set bonds of $5,000. Each for Kimbell and Robertson Monday after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge them with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. They were told to come back to court Dec. 12.
