Multiple law enforcement officers serving a warrant on a parole absconder Friday ended up arresting her and two others on multiple felony charges after drugs were allegedly found in her Pearcy residence.
Tarah Kandiss Davis, 26, and Rodney Dale Magby, 53, both of 165 Kathryn Lane in Pearcy, and Darren Paul Aringe, 51, who lists a Whitford Road address in Pearcy, were taken into custody shortly after 11 a.m. and each charged with possession of meth with purpose to deliver, punishable by up to 30 years in prison, unauthorized use of another person's property to facilitate a crime and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, each punishable by up to 20 years, maintaining a drug premises, punishable by up to 10 years, and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, punishable by up to six years.
Davis was held over the weekend on zero bond while Magby and Aringe were each held on a $35,000 bond and all three were set to appear Monday in Garland County District Court.
According to the probable cause affidavit, shortly before 11 a.m., Arkansas Community Correction's Special Response Team agents, investigators with the 18th Judicial District East Drug Task Force, Arkansas State Police and Garland County sheriff's deputies responded to the residence of Davis on Kathryn Lane to arrest her on a parole absconder warrant.
Davis and Aringe were located and taken into custody after they both came out an open back door as officers arrived. After confirming Davis had a warrantless search waiver on file, the officers entered the residence after announcing their presence with a loudspeaker and identifying themselves as law enforcement.
After entering through a rear door, the officers reportedly located Magby hiding inside a bedroom closet and took him into custody. A syringe was found next to Magby and it appeared he had dispensed the liquid contents of the syringe onto the floor.
In searching the residence, investigators reportedly found a pair of camouflage pants that had a meth pipe in the pockets and a bag of what later tested positive for meth. They also found digital scales, a glass pipe, multiple plastic baggies, four used syringes and one with 20cc of meth.
In the master bedroom, they reportedly found a woman's wallet with Davis' ID inside that also contained $1,560 in cash and a man's wallet with Aringe's ID inside that contained $626 in cash. Aringe also reportedly admitted the camouflage pants belonged to him but denied there being anything illegal in them.
The affidavit notes the DTF agents seized the money and drugs found.
