Hot Springs Police Corporal Kenny May reports the following:
On 07/13/19 at approximately 1715 hours, I (Cpl. Kenny May #131) observed a white Toyota Camry traveling westbound in the 200 block of E. Grand Ave. The vehicle was being driven by a white male who was later identified as Bradley Yarbrough, who was also the sole occupant of the vehicle. I noticed Yarbrough was not wearing a seat belt. As soon as he saw me, he began to buckle up. I initiated a traffic stop for the seatbelt violation and Yarbrough pulled over in the 100 block of W. Grand Ave.
Immediately upon my contact with him, I observed the odor of burned marijuana in the car. I asked him how much marijuana was in the car, and he stated that he had a “piece” near the cupholder. In that area, I located a glass pipe with burned marijuana residue. I soon walked over to the passenger side of the car to search that area. I asked Yarbrough if he had a valid Medical Marijuana Card and he stated he did not. I noticed a blue backpack in the passenger seat floorboard. In an exterior pocket of that backpack, there was a dark green glove. I felt the glove and felt an object that I clearly knew to be a bowl-style glass pipe consistent with methamphetamine use. I opened the glove and located a bowl-style glass pipe used for ingesting methamphetamine. The pipe had burn marks and was heavily coated with white residue. In the interior of the same backpack, I located a second glass pipe with burned marijuana residue.
Bradley Allen Yarbrough, 26, of Peachwood Street in Garland County was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. He is charged with Felony Drug Paraphernalia and Drug Paraphernalia x 2 with a bond amount totaling $4,500.
