Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy Crow was on patrol in the Highway 7 South/Highway 290 area last night when he allegedly found a silver Nissan Sentra traveling on a state highway with only 1 headlight working.
Dep. Crow stopped the vehicle and found that the license plate on this vehicle allegedly belongs on a different vehicle. The driver allegedly kept giving Dep. Crow bogus names and dates of birth during the identification process. The driver was also unable to produce a driver’s license or paperwork for the vehicle.
The driver was handcuffed and detained. Then, the driver finally allegedly gave the correct info. Probationer Joshua Cole Hardin, 30, of South Harris Road in Garland County, was found to be wanted out of Garland County. The driver was arrested.
A search/inventory of the vehicle allegedly revealed a spoon with white residue, soaked cotton swabs a loaded hypodermic needle and a baggie containing approximately 3.4 grams of meth.
Probationer Hardin was transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. He is charged with Felony Probation Violation, Felony Possession Of Meth, Felony Possession Of Meth Paraphernalia and Obstructing Governmental Operations with a bond amount totaling $9,500.
