From Conway Police Department reports
Traffic stop leads to drug charges
Two Conway men are facing drug charges following a New Year's Day traffic stop.
According to an incident report, officer Jonathan Vince was patrolling along Farve Lane around 10:35 a.m. Jan. 1 when he noticed a 1997 black Volkswagen Gol speed pas Ellen Smith Elementary School.
In his report, Vince said that at one point he drove about 50 mph when catching up to the suspect vehicle. Eventually, the suspect vehicle pulled into the driveway of a construction site on Josh Drive. The driver, 22-year-old Ryan Morse, said he didn't realize he was speeding and that "he was rushing to get to this job site and that his speedometer was broken."
Morse was confronted by Vince about smelling of marijuana when he admitted to smoking "a bowl" at passenger Travis Dustin Carvis' home just before they headed over to the construction site, according to the report.
At this point, Vince asked to search both men and the vehicle.
"I asked for consent to search both Ryan and Travis [and] both granted me consent," Vince wrote in his report. "While performing a consent search of Ryan, I stuck my index finger into his coin pocket of his pants, when I did so, he grabbed ahold of my right wrist and began pushing my arm downwards."
Morse was told not to grab the officer. Soon after, Carvis admitted to having marijuana in his pocket and Morse said other contraband was inside a toolbox. According to the report, authorities found about half a gram of suspected methamphetamine and about 21 grams of marijuana inside the vehicle.
Both Conway men were taken to the Faulkner County Detention Center following the traffic stop and now face several drug charges.
A Conway couple faces drug charges after reportedly having methamphetamine and other paraphernalia while living in a local recovery facility.
Conway officers were called to the Phoenix Recovery Center on Jan. 2 after a probation officer reportedly found meth in one of the facility's duplexes.
Dylan Mistrille, a probation officer, reportedly found a black zip-up bag in one of the duplexes that had suspected methamphetamine, used syringes and other contraband inside it. Charles Coles and another man who was inside the apartment were already detained when Conway officer Sandra Keefe arrived on scene, according to the report.
After officer Keefe arrived on scene, a second bag was found.
"Inside of the purple bag was a gallon bag full of prescriptions in the name of Cora Lewing," the incident report reads in part.
Lewing who was standing outside the apartment, admitted the bag and "everything in the bag," including a small amount of suspected meth, was hers.
After claiming ownership to the contraband, the report states Lewing was also detained. After putting handcuffs on the 25-year-old woman, officer Keefe asked Lewing if she had anything else illegal with her, adding that while she did not find any contraband in Lewing's pockets when searching the suspect, Lewing "appeared very nervous and jittery."
Keefe told Lewing she could face additional charges if she was caught with any contraband at the jail and asked the 25-year-old woman if she needed to step into the restroom to reveal any hidden contraband. Lewing opted to go into the restroom, where she proceeded to pull "what appeared to be methamphetamine ... from in-between her butt cheeks," the incident report states.
According to the incident report, while headed to the county jail, Coles "who is Lewing's boyfriend told her that if she wanted to 'hustle,' this is hustling."
