David Gullett, of Malvern, has been charged in Clark County Circuit Court for drug offenses.
The Arkadelphia Police Department responded to a report of a shoplifting at Wal-Mart. Upon arrival, officers encountered a suspect who had previously been banned for many past incidents. He informed officers that he had driven to the scene with Gullett.
The 48-year-old suspect was waiting in the car when officers made contact with him. Officers learned that Gullett had a slew of warrants against him from Nevada County, the Hot Springs Police Department, and Truman. He was placed under arrest for the Nevada County warrant.
Sgt. Robert Jones did an inventory of the vehicle and discovered a backpack containing an empty syringe and a second one with suspected methamphetamine.
During an interview at the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Gullett admitted to having the items, also giving an amount of 30 units of meth.
Gullett has been charged with possession of both methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
