KNOXVILLE, Ark. (KFSM) — Five people have been arrested after meth, drug paraphernalia and several stolen items were recovered following a search warrant being issued for a home in Knoxville, Arkansas.

"We are working hard to control the drug trade in Johnson County. Combatting the manufacturing, distribution and possession of illegal narcotics is the JCSO’s number one enforcement priority. Of all the arrests made in the month of April, 20% were on drug related charges and 57% of those were felony arrests. We remain vigilant and determined to pursue all those who are engaged in illegal drug activity," Penney Prickett with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office said.
