Huge Northwest Arkansas Marijuana and Drug Bust

A routine traffic stop for Officer Paul Edwards of the University of Arkansas Police in Northwest Arkansas netted four pounds of marijuana. He arrested Brandon Oren Armstrong, 22, of Fayetteville, Arkansas and Christopher Lee Summers, 19, of Elkins, Arkansas for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

But the initial arrest was only the beginning. Detectives with the 4th Judicial Drug Task Force obtained a search warrant for a residence at 1925 W. Lawson, Fayetteville, Arkansas on Sunday, Dec. 14. Detectives of the drug task force, assisted by the Fayetteville Police Department and Washington County Emergency Response Team, seized approximately 10.75 pounds of marijuana, 0.5 grams of methamphetamine, items of drug paraphernalia, three guns and approximately $44,747.


Police arrested Julie Ann Cooper, 21, and Lenny Gene Albrecht, 28, for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, and enhancement charges related to drug activity occurring within 1,000 feet of a school.

This investigation is ongoing.


Fayetteville voters approved a pro-marijuana initiative on the November ballot, leading some to speculate a fast growing demand for illegal drug among many residents of this Northwest Arkansas college town.

The Unauthorized News for Northwest Arkansas

My name is Roger. Welcome to my blog.

My parents named me after the town in Northwest Arkansas where I was born and raised called Rogers, Arkansas.

We write about everything we see, smell, hear, and touch about living in the quaint little towns of Northwest Arkansas.

We've been made "famous" for hogs, chickens, trucks, but mostly for being the birthplace of the largest Chinese flea market outside of China.
