Drug Busts in South Logan County
On September 7, 2022, the Logan County Sheriff's Office, with the assistance of the Booneville Police Department, Arkansas Probation/Parole, and the 15th Judicial Drug Task Force went to a motel in Booneville to serve two felony warrants on Andrew Barnes, 32, who was reported to be staying in one of the rooms. They found Andrew along with Kayla Fox, 26, and another person. All have valid search waivers on file for being on probation or parole. Narcotics Investigator Howard Bates found a large plastic bag containing numerous smaller bags containing brownish/black substances that had appearance and odor of black tar heroin and three syringes. The items were in a purse allegedly belonging Kayla. The motel room was located within 1000 feet of the Booneville Park located behind the Booneville City Hall and Police Department so this adds an enhancement to the charges.
Andrew was arrested on the two felony warrants and Kayla was arrested for the illegal drugs and both were transported to the Logan County Detention Center. Kayla was booked in on the anticipated charges of Possession of Heroin with Purpose to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession/Delivery of Controlled Substances in Proximity to Certain Facilities (public park). Andrew was booked in for the two felony warrants for Theft of Property (x2) and Breaking or Entering (x2). The substances were logged into evidence and will be forwarded to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for further testing.
On the same day, our narcotics investigator and deputies from the Logan County Sheriff's Office, a 15th Judicial Drug Task Force agent, and a Booneville Police officer went to a residence on Logan Hall Road south of Booneville to serve three Delivery of Methamphetamines warrants on James Allcorn, 61. James was located at the residence and arrested. They obtained a search warrant based on the contraband that was seen during the arrest and then searched the house. They found a crystal substance believed to be methamphetamines, scales, syringes, baggies, and cash money. The contraband was field-tested and showed a presumptive reaction as methamphetamines. The substances were logged into evidence and will be forwarded to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for further testing. James was transported to the Logan County Detention Center and booked in on the anticipated charges of Possession of Methamphetamines with the Purpose to Deliver and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and the three felony warrants for Delivery of Methamphetamines.
