A man from Mountain Home came in to obey one law, and was arrested for allegedly breaking several others.
The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office reports Mason Grant, 25, dropped by the Sheriff’s Office to register as a sex offender, as required by law. While deputies processed the paperwork, they discovered that Grant had a suspended driver’s license. Deputies asked Grant how he got to the office. They say at first he told them a friend dropped him off. Deputies didn’t take his word for it, and checked surveillance video. They arrested Grant on a charge of driving with a suspended license.
While searching Grant in the course of that arrest, deputies allegedly found a small amount of suspected methamphetamine in his shirt pocket, as well as drug paraphernalia.
Grant is jailed on charges of Felony Possession of Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine), Felony Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Misdemeanor Driving While License Suspended. He’s being held without bond in the Baxter County Jail for an alleged parole violation.
