PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Jefferson County deputies made an arrest after a man attempted to throw large amounts of drugs and contraband over an Arkansas detention center fence.
Cellphones, drugs, lighters and tools were just a few of the items found Friday in a cooler on the grounds of the W.C “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center (DBDC), according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office.
Late Friday night, deputies were alerted of suspicious activity outside DBDC. After investigation, deputies revealed 36-year-old Oliver Moore, driven by 38-year-old Catrlia Lashun Sanders-Heard, arrived nearby DBDC in a black GMC Yukon.
