Suspect allegedly attempted to sell meth to informant

A Rogers, Ark., woman was arrested on Thursday after allegedly attempting to sell methamphetamine to an informant in the Cassville area.

Brittany Henry, 25, of Rogers, Ark., is charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Jeremy Thomas, an officer with the Cassville Police Department, authorities were dispatched to Walmart in Cassville for a trespassing report. Thomas and fellow officer Kyle Kuhn arrived on the scene and made contact with the individuals involved, including Henry.

Kenen Martinez, Exeter police chief, notified Thomas that Henry was wanted by the Barry County Sheriff’s Office, and he wanted Henry for alleged distribution.

When Martinez arrived on the scene, he spoke to Henry, then allegedly removed a small plastic baggie from her purse that contained two small crystals Henry said were methamphetamine and field tested positive for the drug.

Martinez said Henry had allegedly been coordinating with an informant, attempting to sell the meth for money.

Henry is being held in the Barry County jail on a $20,000 bond. She was arraigned Monday and a disposition hearing is set for Aug. 17 at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke. A motion for a bond reduction has also been filed by Attorney Kyle Tolbert.
