Two Arrested for Manufacturing Methamphetamine While Out on Bond for Manufacturing Methamphetamine

     A joint investigation of drug trafficking and manufacturing of Methamphetamine by officers of the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, Mountain Home Police Department, Arkansas State Police and the 14th Judicial Drug Task Force has led to the arrest of four (4) Baxter County Residents.

     Officers had developed intelligence on three of the suspects as to their possible involvement in the manufacturing of Methamphetamine. Using this information along with information from the State's ‘Leads on Labs' program which showed the purchase of pseudoephedrine by the suspects, the officers were able to obtain a Search Warrant.

     At approximately 5 pm on Wednesday, January 19, Officers executed the search warrant at a residence on County Road 99, in the northern part of Baxter County. Numerous items used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine were seized. Bradley DeWeese and Stephenie Vandrimmelen were taken into custody without incident. A third suspect was not at the residence at the time of the search warrant. A B.O.L.O. was broadcast to area law enforcement officers to pick up and arrest the third suspect if located. At approximately 7 pm the third suspect's vehicle came to the residence and then tried to flee the area but was stopped. The driver, Bobby Gilley was arrested without incident. A passenger in Gilley's vehicle was taken into custody on Misdemeanor charges.
