Incidents reported to Maumelle police through March 15:
24 Windsor Drive: On March 5, Emma Cords, 27, of Maumelle, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Maumelle District Court Bailiff Michael McNeil executed a home inspection visit to Cords’ residence as a condition of her probation after Cords complained to McNeil about alleged illegal activities by her roommates. When McNeil and Maumelle police officers arrived, one of the residents “grabbed a small red backpack from the living room” and told officers it belonged to another resident and contained a pistol that the lady had a concealed carry permit to have. Police said they held the pistol for safekeeping while they were there. McNeil found a small bag of marijuana in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator that weighed 1.2 ounces (23.7 grams) and a wooden box in the kitchen that contained digital scales with marijuana residue, a set of metal weighing scales, a marijuana grinder with marijuana residue and a straw cut in half with two packs of rolling papers beside it. Another small bag of marijuana was found in Cords’ bedroom on her night stand weighing 1.6 grams with a one-hitter marijuana pipe, according to the police report. Police said they also found a small plastic baggie with marijuana residue and a marijuana glass bong on the floor beside Cords’ bed. Cords’ roommate, Rebeca Rodriguez, 26, refused police permission to search her bedroom so police obtained a search and seizure warrant and when they executed it police said they found a large quantity of small plastic bags and a hand written note that said, “If you need smoke let me know got me a hook up. 20 a.g.”

After ordering him to drop his hammer, Ivey said Smith had a “strong odor of intoxicants … and he had bloodshot eyes.” Ivey said the man told him he’d consumed three 22-ounce beers and was headed to E Z Mart to get another.

Scotty Bryant said Balch was not at that address and he has been unable to locate him.
100 Victory Drive: On March 6, Officer Chris Stroud said a female student at Maumelle High School approached him and said several cell phones had been stolen from her locker. She told Stroud she’d placed the phones in the locker around 8:30 a.m. and discovered two missing at 10:30 a.m. She also said she’d allowed a male student at the school to place a bag inside her locker that morning. Stroud said he pulled the security video for that area and saw the same young man come back 15 minutes later along with three more male students and take out his bag, then open the jacket inside the locker and give two cell phones to two of the students with him. Stroud said he could see one of the cell phones had a pink cover, just like one of the phones missing. Stroud said the four students were called into an assistant principal’s office one-by-one and they denied taking the phones at first, until they were shown the video of them receiving a phone. Later one of the students told police he had taken the phone and put it in a trash can in a bathroom. Stroud said a search of the trash can found no phone and the juvenile later admitted he had given it to another student. Police said they retrieved the phone and returned it to the owner. None of the students were identified in the report since they are all juveniles.
