LIBERTY, March 9, 2015 - A second drug arrest occurred on Friday, March 6, 2015 when the Criminal Interdiction Unit valiantly fighting the overwhelming drug problem in Arkansas, initiated a traffic stop for speeding at approximately 6:15pm on a gold colored Chevrolet out of Van Buren, Arkansas traveling on U.S. 59 near the city of Cleveland, Texas.
There were three occupants of the vehicle and each gave a different story as to where they were traveling which gave rise to suspicion that criminal activity was taking place.
