Ashley Dawn King

Jeffrey C. Sumner

 

     Two Pontiac, Missouri residents were arrested Saturday evening, March 14th, on felony drug charges after Sheriff’s Corporal William Altazan stopped the vehicle they were in for an equipment violation on State Highway 5 North at approximately 8:26 PM.

     The vehicle was driven by 43 year old JEFFREY C. SUMNER and the passenger was 26 year old ALISHA DAWN KING.  The female gave Corporal Altazan a false name during the stop and subsequent investigation. 

     Due to the demeanor and statements of the vehicle occupants, Corporal Altazan asked for consent to search the vehicle for contraband, which was denied.  A Mountain Home Police certified drug dog was called to the location of the stop to sniff the vehicle for contraband.  The drug dog alerted on the vehicle, and a search was then conducted.

     During the search of the vehicle, officers found several syringes loaded with controlled substance, several pills later identified as Oxycodone and Cyclobenzaprine, and other drug paraphernalia.  Both subjects were taken into custody as a result of the search and were transported to the Baxter County Detention Center for booking.

     Following the booking process, the fingerprint scan returned an identity on the female as ALISHA DAWN KING, who had given Corporal Altazan a different name prior.

     JEFFREY C. SUMNER was charged with:

Possession of Controlled Substance – Felony
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Felony

     ALISHA DAWN KING was charged with:

Possession of Controlled Substance – Felony
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Felony
Obstructing Governmental Operations – Misdemeanor
Hold for Other Agencies – Greene County, Missouri Felony Warrant

     JEFFREY SUMNER was released after posting $10,000 bond.  He will appear in Circuit Court on March 19th.

     ALISHA KING remains in the Detention Center with a $10,000 bond on the Baxter County charges and without bond on the Greene County, Missouri hold.
