Otto, Polk County’s K9 narcotics officer, has made yet another bust removing marijuana, methamphetamine, and pills from the streets. On Sunday, August 27, 2017, Deputy Jim Smith conducted a traffic stop on an “unlicensed” Chevrolet truck.
Smith called for K9 Deputy Brady Whisenhunt to assist at the scene. During the search, Otto alerted to the passenger side of the vehicle, leading Deputy Whisenhunt to the drugs and paraphernalia.
During the search of the vehicle, officers found approximately three grams of marijuana, one gram of methamphetamine, several prescription pills individually packaged, ten syringes, and other items of drug paraphernalia.
The driver of the vehicle, Stanley Dale Plumley, age 45, of Cove, Ark., was arrested and transported to the Polk County Detention Center. Plumley has been unofficially charged with Possession of a Schedule 2 Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver, Possession of a Schedule 2 Controlled less than two grams, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of a Schedule 4 Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver; and Possession of a Schedule 6 Controlled Substance less than four ounces.
