BAXTER COUNTY MAN ARRESTED ON OUTSTANDING FELONY WARRANTS
Jason M. Biddle
JASON MICHAEL BIDDLE, 31 years old of rural Mountain Home, was arrested by this afternoon on several outstanding warrants and drug charges. BIDDLE had at least three outstanding felony bench warrants issued by the Baxter County Circuit Court. These warrants had been issued in July and August upon affidavits of officers from various agencies, including charges stemming from a vehicle pursuit with Arkansas State Police on August 23rd in which BIDDLE was not captured.
Authorities had been searching for BIDDLE since the warrants had been issued. They observed recently on social media that BIDDLE had listed various articles of property on a Facebook Yard Sale page. Investigators utilized a fake account to arrange to meet JASON BIDDLE at a business East of Henderson to purchase some of the items he had listed for sale. BIDDLE and Investigators arrived at the appointed place and time, which resulted in BIDDLE’S arrest. When BIDDLE was taken into custody, he was found to have approximately 2.5 grams of methamphetamine on his person.
