LITTLE ROCK, AR – A search of a home on Tupelo Trail in Bismarck found “an elaborate marijuana grow operation” Tuesday afternoon. The Hot Spring County Sheriff’s Office says they found 35 pot plants, grow lights, and a “sophisticated watering system.”

Arrested are Chad Crumpton and his wife Joleen Crumpton. Both are in the county jail awaiting formal charges.

The sheriff’s office says they were conducting a welfare check of a child living in a grow house. When they arrived at the house, deputies say they smelled marijuana, and obtained a search warrant for the house.

Chad Crumpton, who arrived at the house before the search, was arrested at the scene. Joleen Crumpton was picked up later in Hot Springs.
