Traffic stops conducted by Greene County sheriff’s deputies recently resulted in five felony drug arrests.

In the first incident, deputies arrested Shea Nicole Roswell, 28, of Paragould on charges of one count each of possession of less that two grams of a Schedule I/II controlled substance (methamphetamine or cocaine) and possession of drug paraphernalia to ingest, etc., both Class D felonies; plus misdemeanor charges.

According to a probable cause affidavit sworn by Sgt. Zakkery Crocker of the department, her arrest occurred June 4, after a deputy had conducted a traffic stop on her vehicle for defective lighting. A K9 alert on the vehicle led to the findings of suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia items used to inject methamphetamine in Roswell’s possession.

She remains in the Greene County Detention Center (GCDC) on a $10,000 bond.

In the second incident, also on June 4, deputies arrested Jonathan Martin Rogers, 34, of Paragould, on charges of one count each of possession of between two and 10 grams of a Schedule I/II controlled substance, a Class C felony; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class D felony; plus numerous misdemeanor charges.

According to another probable cause affidavit sworn by Crocker, Rogers’ arrest followed a traffic stop after he was seen to be driving a vehicle while not wearing a seatbelt. Upon the deputy’s initiating the stop, Rogers reportedly exited the vehicle, fleeing on foot. The deputy then pursued Rogers, and as he caught up with him, Rogers began to physically resist arrest, while continuing his attempt to flee from the deputy; the deputy reportedly suffered minor injury. Rogers was found to have methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia concealed in the driver door compartment of the vehicle from which he fled.

Rogers remains in the GCDC on a $25,000 bond.

In the third incident, deputies arrested Justin Allen Scott, 37, of Paragould, on charges of one count each of possession with purpose to deliver between two and 28 grams of a Schedule I/II controlled substance (other than methamphetamine or cocaine), a Class B felony; possession with purpose to deliver between 14 grams and four ounces of a Schedule VI controlled substance, and possession with purpose to deliver less than 80 dosage units of a Schedule IV/V controlled substance, both class D felonies. Scott also faces misdemeanor charges.

According to a third probable cause affidavit sworn by Crocker, Scott’s arrest was the result of a June 5 traffic stop after deputies reportedly observed a vehicle with a stolen license plate being operated in a careless manner. Upon making contact with the vehicle’s occupants, deputies reportedly determined Scott was on active parole, so they conducted a parole search of the vehicle.

In the course of the search, the deputies reportedly discovered marijuana, marijuana edibles, alprazolam tablets, digital scales, and what is believed to be psilocybin mushrooms, which Scott claimed to be his possessions.

Scott remains in the GCDC on a $15,000 bond.

In the last incident, also on June 5, deputies arrested Ashlee Nicole Lange, 27, of Kanawha, W.V., and Michael Eldon Giddings, 50, of Jonesboro, each on charges of one count each of possession with purpose to deliver between 10 and 200 grams of methamphetamine or cocaine, a Class A felony; possession with purpose to deliver between two and 10 grams of a Schedule I/II controlled substance (excluding methamphetamine or cocaine), a Class B felony; possession with purpose to deliver less than 28 grams of a Schedule VI controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia to ingest, etc., both Class D felonies. Lange and Giddings also face misdemeanor charges.

According to more probable cause affidavits sworn by Crocker, the arrests occurred after a deputy stopped the vehicle Giddings was driving (with Lange as a passenger) for a defective tail/brake light. Upon making contact with driver Giddings, the deputy learned from dispatchers that Giddings was on active parole with a search waiver on file, so deputies conducted a search of the vehicle. In the course of the search they reportedly discovered methamphetamine, marijuana, LSD, cocaine, Schedule IV tablets, and drug paraphernalia items all packaged to deliver. Lange, after being advised of her rights to remain silent and to have an attorney present under questioning, reportedly made self-incriminating statements after the the deputies had located the listed items.

Giddings remains in the GCDC on a $25,000 bond. Lange remains there on a $15,000 bond.
