FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – Local drug task force agents arrested a Fayetteville man Wednesday following a drug-dealing investigation that lasted several weeks.

Andrew Scott Tabor, 25, was arrested on suspicion of several possession of a controlled substance charges after members of the Fourth Judicial Drug Task Force began investigating a group selling marijuana in the Northwest Arkansas area, according to a preliminary report from the Washington County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Fourth Judicial Task Force is made up of law enforcement from several area agencies.

Tabor was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 6:38 p.m. He was released 31 minutes later on $2,500 bond, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. He faces three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a Schedule IV drug with intent to deliver.

After several weeks of investigating a group suspected of dealing marijuana in Northwest Arkansas, authorities executed a search warrant on Tabor’s home on Iron Horse Drive in Fayetteville.

Nothing illegal was found in the suspect’s home, but task force members said they found a pink bag containing a glass jar of five marijuana baggies in Tabor’s pickup. Authorities also found a metal lock box in the vehicle containing a baggie of marijuana, a carisoprodol pill, marijuana seeds and rolling papers, according to the preliminary report.

Authorities also found an oxycodone pill in the truck’s cup holder, the preliminary report states.

Tabor’s arraignment is set for Nov. 14 in Washington County, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
