The Stuttgart Police Department seized a substantial amount of drugs and cash from a high traffic area on the block of 400 S. Rose.
12 ounces of Marijuana, 226 MDMA (Ecstasy Pills), 10 Oxycodone Pills, various drug paraphernalia items and $3,222 in cash were recovered on October 30.
Drug trafficking had been reported previously in the area and after residential confirmation and an active search waiver on file, SPD Detectives went to investigate the scene.
Detective Brodie Faughn observed a black male exiting the residence. The male identified himself and stated he was visiting the residence. He was asked to remove his hands from his pocket. In doing so, a small bag of green leafy substances fell from his left pocket.
He was then placed into custody stating he had bought the substance inside. Detective Faughn knocked on the door of the residence and could smell a strong odor of marijuana according to the SPD incident report.
A lot of movement and commotion could be heard from inside the residence, which is also within 1,000 feet from a city park. According to Detective Faughn, it sounded as if there were several people in the residence running around.
SPD Detective Richardson and Watson manned the back door of the residence to prevent anyone from attempting to flee.
Five minutes passed and the suspect, identified as Adrian Spratt answered the door. According to reports, he was sweating tremendously and appeared to be out of breath.
The officers cleared the residence for other occupants and found a male in the master bedroom.
The detectives advised Spratt of their knowledge of drug trafficking.
Spratt admitted where the drugs were located to the detectives. A cooler was found inside the attic. The cooler contained a tray with keys, THC wax, cigarillo, scissors, marijuana roaches and buds of marijuana.
The cooler also contained five mason jars, two with green leafy substances.
A set of scales, a pill bottle of Oxycodone, a THC vape and a large bag of colorful pills identified as MDMA was also found in the cooler.
Spratt claimed all the findings to belong to him. The other male who was found inside the home was released.
Money from the transactions was found in a small bag hanging on the door, under a mattress, folded next to a grinder and under a pillow totaling $3,222.57.
Continued search throughout the residence led to bags of marijuana, MDMA pills on the floor, THC Wax in the living room and marijuana in the dining room.
Spratt is a probationer with active supervision according to SPD.
He was transported to the Arkansas County Detention Center where he is being held on seven charges including felony charges, possession of scheduled I or II w purpose to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and distribution near certain facilities.
