According to a press release from Green Forest Police Chief John Bailey, at approximately 9 p.m. on July 17, Green Forest officers Det. Allen Phillips, Todd Noftsger and Donald Harland assisted Arkansas Adult Probation and Parole officer Suzanne Villines with a home visit at parolee Robert Periman’s residence located at the North Gate apartment in Green Forest.

As a condition of Periman’s release from the Arkansas Department of Corrections, he signed a “search waiver” giving his parole officer and law enforcement the consent to search his resident, vehicle and person at any time, the release says.

While officers conducted a search of the residence, the release says, a large amount of drugs, more than $1,000 in cash and a firearm were all located inside the apartment. Many of the items were seen in plain view of the officers who were assisting in the search, according to the release.

The release says several other people were inside the apartment, including Blackston, a convicted felon on probation who was not to associate with other convicted felons.

The subjects are being held in the Carroll County Detention Center, according to the intake press release from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
