Couple arrested on drug, weapons charges | Crime
An Annieville couple faces multiple charges, including child endangerment, after investigators say they found a large amount of drugs and guns in their home.
On Thursday, Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies arrested 36-year-old Dwight Nunnally and 23-year-old Tiffany McCain at a home on Clear Springs Road.
According to Sheriff Jody Dotson, deputies were serving an arrest warrant on Nunnally, who was wanted for battery, aggravated assault and terrorist threatening, when they reportedly found the drugs and guns.
During a search of the home, Sheriff Dotson says deputies found a “large bag of meth and a glass meth pipe” on a coffee table in the living room, as well as a “large bag of marijuana.” He said investigators also found “several loaded handguns and rifles within reach of the meth.” One of the rifles, he said, had been “cut to an unlawful length.”
Investigators also found a four-year-old child in the home. The Department of Human Services took her into protective care, Dotson said.
Deputies arrested Nunnally and McCain on charges of possession of a controlled substance (meth) with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), possession of drug paraphernalia, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, endangering the welfare of a minor and criminal use of prohibited weapons.
McCain was also charged with felon in possession of a firearm and probation violations. Nunnally was also charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threatening and battery.
Both are being held in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
Sheriff Dotson said officers with the Arkansas State Police, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Hoxie Police Department, AET Ambulance and Randolph County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the search and arrests.
