Four suspects were arrested Wednesday on meth charges following an investigation into a burglary at a veterinary supply business.

The owner of K&K Veterinary Supply in Tontitown reported that someone broke into the business Sept. 12. He told officers a computer and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash were stolen, according to a preliminary report from the Washington County Prosecutor’s Office.

The investigation led the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Springdale Police Department to the Springdale home of Robert Blake Simco, 28. Officers and deputies executed a search warrant and found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and items believed to have been used in the burglary.

Simco was arrested on suspicion of felony commercial burglary, felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. He remained in the Washington County Detention Center on Thursday night on $3,500 bond.

Christopher Harris, 30, Hollye Harris, 27, and Jeffrey Peterson, 44, were arrested in connection with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. All three were released Thursday on $2,500 bond each.
