     Two Eureka Springs residents were arrested Tuesday afternoon, March 3rd, on drug charges after being stopped for running a red light in Mountain Home.   At approximately 12:33 PM, Sheriff's Deputy Craig Kocka observed the driver of a 2004 Dodge Neon run a red light at the intersection of 9th Street and Cardinal Drive in Mountain Home.

     Deputy Kocka stopped the vehicle and made contact with the driver, who was identified as 46 year old VALERIE LYNETTE PLUMLEE of Eureka Springs.  There was a passenger in the vehicle who was identified as 31 year old ANDREW THOMAS DAVIS, also of Eureka Springs.  During the course of the stop, it was determined that VALERIA PLUMLEE had a suspended driver license and the passenger, ANDREW DAVIS, had misdemeanor warrants out of Eureka Springs for Failure to Appear in Court.
