From Conway Police Department reports
Friends banned from Sam's Club
A Clinton man was arrested Friday morning shortly after he and his friend were banned from the Sam's Club in Conway.
According to an incident report, employees called authorities to the store located on South Amity Road shortly before 10:30 a.m. after a man had reportedly passed out in the tire section.
When officer Trey Hodges arrived on scene, an employee told him two men came to the store together and "he believed one of the males to be heavily intoxicated," the report states.
Employees request police formally ban both individuals -- George Rice and Michael Hamner -- from the retail warehouse.
As officer Hodges filled out the trespass report, he asked Hamner, who had a backpack with him, if there was anything illegal inside his backpack.
Hamner, 51, of Clinton said he did not have anything illegal with him and consented to allowing Hodges to search his belongings. During the search, Hodges reportedly found a syringe hidden in a cigarillo package that was loaded with a brown substance that later tested positive on scene for methamphetamine.
After searching Hamner, finding the suspected paraphernalia and substance that appeared to be meth, the 51-year-old Clinton man was ultimately arrested on two charges -- possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance -- and was taken to the county jail.
