PAROLEE FACES MORE DRUG CHARGES
Joshua James Langston
A parolee, 32 year old JOSHUA JAMES LANGSTON of rural Mountain Home, was arrested on April 18th when officers from the Arkansas Department of Community Corrections and Sheriff’s Investigators conducted a probation/parole compliance home check at a house on Clements Drive.
During the course of the compliance check, JOSHUA LANGSTON was found in a downstairs portion of the residence. In this area, officers found approximately 9.6 grams of methamphetamine, multiple sets of digital scales containing methamphetamine residue, a loaded syringe, multiple glass smoking devices, and approximately $600 in cash.
JOSHUA LANGSTON is a parole absconder from a previous methamphetamine delivery conviction. He has a lengthy criminal history, including 22 bookings in the Baxter County Detention Center alone since 2010.
Officers transported JOSHUA LANGSTON to the Baxter County Detention Center where he was booked on charges of:
Possession of Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine) with Purpose to Deliver – Felony
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (2 counts) – Felonies
Habitual Offender – Penalty Enhancement
Parole Violation – Felony
LANGSTON remains in jail custody with a bond of $10,000 on the new charges but without bond on the parole violation. He was scheduled to appear yesterday in Baxter County Circuit Court to answer.
