     Sheriff’s Deputies arrested two people early this morning on drug charges in two separate incidents.

     At approximately 2:58 AM this morning, Corporal Rockie Morrell was dispatched to the Citgo station at 6160 Hwy 5 North on a complaint of a man slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle.  While enroute to the location, Corporal Morrell found the vehicle in question, a maroon Chevrolet Impala, wrecked at the intersection of Hwy 5 N. and Dillard Drive a short distance from the Citgo station. JOSHUA ALAN HANNAFORD, 34 years old of Gainesville, Missouri, was encountered and identified as the driver of the vehicle. 

     During the course of the investigation, Corporal Morrell determined that HANNAFORD was under the influence of a controlled substance. HANNAFORD was subsequently arrested for DWI-Drugs and other traffic offenses and was taken to the Detention Center.  Prior to entering the Detention Center, HANNAFORD was asked if he had any illegal substances on his person, which he denied.  However, once HANNAFORD was thoroughly searched inside the Detention Center, he was found to have in his possession approximately 1.2 grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. JOSHUA HANNAFORD was booked on charges of:

Possession of Controlled Substance (methamphetamine) – Felony
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Felony
Furnishing, Possessing, or Using Prohibited Articles – Felony
Driving While Intoxicated – Misdemeanor
Refusal of Intoxication Test – Misdemeanor
No Liability Insurance – Misdemeanor
Careless Driving – Misdemeanor
Fictitious Vehicle License – Misdemeanor

     HANNAFORD was released on a bond of $9,150 and will appear in court to answer on October 19th.

     The second incident involved a complaint that Deputy Craig Gates took from Casey’s Convenience Store on Hwy 5 North in Mountain Home at approximately 4:15 AM.  This complaint involved another man inside a vehicle on the parking lot who was passed out and couldn’t be awaken.  The man had supposedly been there on the parking lot since 1:00 AM.  Deputy Gates made contact with 49 year old STACEY RAY MOONEY of Mountain Home and inquired as to why he was there. MOONEY was subsequently searched, and Deputy Gates found approximately .1 gram of methamphetamine on MOONEY’S person. MOONEY was taken to the Detention Center where he was booked on a charge of:

Possession of Controlled Substance (methamphetamine) – Felony

     STACEY MOONEY was released from custody after posting $3,000 bond and will appear in court to answer on October 19th.
