Incidents reported to Maumelle police through July 19:
1501 Club Manor Drive: On July 12, Patrick Damon Bledsoe, 21, of Little Rock was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance.

But the passenger told her he’d already cashed his Wendy’s check. While patting Bledsoe down, Robinson said she found a plastic bag in his pocket that contained 3.4 grams of marijuana.
1501 Club Manor Drive: On July 12, Shawn Bolen, 26, of Maumelle was arrested and charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
