Although federal and state investigators were not able to locate a man they were looking for in connection with federal drug charges Thursday morning, a second man was arrested after officers found marijuana and cocaine at a house in Altheimer where the man was located.

Brandon Nelson, 26, had three bags of marijuana on his person when he was arrested, and officers found five additional bags of marijuana in the house, Deputy Prosecutor Bryan Achorn said during a court hearing for Nelson Friday morning.

Achorn said officers from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, Tri-County Drug Task Force and the Arkansas Highway Police had gone to 101 Olive St., in Altheimer looking for Cory McGown, who was one of 24 people indicted by a federal grand jury at Little Rock on conspiracy to deliver cocaine.

Task Force Investigator John Hughes reported that McGown was not at the house, and the owner gave consent for officers to search the residence. They saw Nelson coming out of the kitchen and one of the officers saw several off-white, rock-like substances that field tested positive for crack cocaine on the kitchen floor.

Achorn said in addition to the bags Nelson was carrying, officers found five more bags on the floor in the living room and kitchen of the house.

The total weight of the marijuana was listed as 9.5 grams, and the crack cocaine weighed 9.3 grams.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 cash only bond for Nelson after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver crack cocaine and possession of a controlled substance marijuana.

Nelson told the judge he would hire his own attorney.
