Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling probable cause exists to charge Antonio Williams, 46, with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and Dennis Heard, 45, with theft of property and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

During the court hearing, Deputy Prosecutor Beth Carson said officers were sent to the Dollar Tree on Olive Street where an employee reported that a man later identified as Heard had left the store with two baskets of products. The clerk was able to give police a license plate number for a vehicle the man got in that left the scene and it returned to a house on Adventure Drive.

Carson said police went to the house to see if they could locate the vehicle.
