MALVERN, AR – A man suspected of operating a counterfeiting ring and a meth lab out of his home in Hot Spring County was arrested Wednesday.
The Hot Spring County Sheriff’s Office and the Malvern Police Department say Jason Frazier was printing counterfeit currency and making meth in a residence on Phoenix Lane in the Gifford Community.
The sheriff’s office says that a “strong chemical odor consistent with a methamphetamine lab” was emanating from the home. When Frazier was searched, deputies found a half gram of meth and $120 in counterfeit bills in his pocket.
Frazier was booked on counterfeiting and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver charges. He was issued a bond of $15,000.
