A trio of Twin Lakes Area residents were arrested Tuesday after Mountain Home police conducting a traffic stop say they found drugs and guns in the truck, along with a toddler.
Arrested were 23-year-old Mountain Home resident Kendrick Nathan Sebree, 28-year-old Midway resident Jessica Lindsay Raymond and 24-year-old Yellville resident Tanner Ray Sebold.
All three face felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia for use in distribution, possession of drug paraphernalia for ingesting methamphetamine, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms and possession of a defaced firearm.
The trio also face a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a minor and Raymond and Sebree face an additional charge of being felons in possession of a firearm. Both Sebree and Raymond were on probation at the time of the Tuesday traffic stop.
Officer Robert McCoy spotted Sebree, who is well known to local law enforcement, riding in the passenger seat of a truck and wearing his seatbelt, according to an affidavit filed in the case. McCoy pulled the truck over and had Sebree step out of the truck.
When Sebree exited the truck, the officer patted him down for weapons and reported finding two needles. Sebree reportedly told the officer that he recently “got” Type 1 Diabetes.
Next officers had Sebold step out of the back seat of the truck. When he did so, McCoy noticed a loaded revolver on the floor. Sebree and Sebold were both placed in handcuffs. Raymond held the two-year-old child as officers further searched the truck.
They reported finding meth, another gun and multiple items of paraphernalia during the ensuing search. All three were told they were under arrest. Officers told them they’d be searched once they arrived at jail and should the search reveal illegal items, they’d be charged not only with possession of the items, but also with another felony.
Sebree informed officers he had drugs in his pants. After being briefly freed from his handcuffs, Sebree produced two bags of meth. Raymond reportedly removed “several” bags of meth from her bra.
An official with the Department of Human Services came to the scene of the traffic stop and took custody of the female toddler. Sebree, Raymond and Sebold were taken to the jail and held in lieu of $10,000 bonds.
Sebree has been booked into the Baxter County jail on 16 different occasions. Sebree and Raymond have been arrested together before.
In November of 2017 they were caught sleeping in the garage of an unoccupied home. When officers searched, they found meth, a meth pipe and “multiple” used syringes. The affidavit in that case makes no mention of Sebree claiming to be a diabetic.
Sebree has multiple felony convictions for crimes dating back to when he was 20 years old. At the time of his latest arrest on Tuesday, Sebree was out on bond after being arrested on Aug. 7.
In that case, another officer who recognized Sebree spotted him driving a car. The officer knew Sebree’s license was suspended and reported attempting to pull him over. The officer said Sebree passed multiple safe places to stop before pulling into a driveway.
Upon arresting Sebree and searching his car, Mountain Home police officer Cody Hillicker reported finding meth, needles, digital scales and multiple baggies similar to those used in the sale of meth. For a second time, Sebree made no mention of being a diabetic.
Sebree also was charged with driving while license suspended for DWI and endangering the welfare of a minor for having his five-year-old son in the car with meth and needles.
