A local doctor was arrested by Barling investigators on suspicion of drugs and firearms charges Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 19), according to Barling Police.

Police said they found two loaded pistols and loose prescription pills inside David Furr’s vehicle.

Furr is facing four counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of misbranded drugs and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, according to investigators.

He was booked into the Sebastian County Detention Center on $30,000 bond.

Furr is listed as a physician for Image Quest Medical Clinic which has locations in Roland and Springdale.

Furr was pulled over at 22nd Street and L Street in Barling after running a stop sign, according to police. Investigators said they searched his vehicle after discovering he was wanted on a third-degree domestic battery warrant out of Sebastian County.

Investigators said they found several different types of prescription drugs and more than $4,000 in cash inside a backpack in the Furr’s vehicle. A loaded .45-caliber pistol and a loaded .40-caliber pistol were also found in the vehicle. Investigators said he did not have a license for the weapons.

      Presuming they meant a CCL but you can’t really know what’s in the mind of a liberal when they write their propaganda.

    The charge was for drugs and firearms right? Even is he had a CCL that’s illegal. So not being licensed is not relevant right?

      Dr Furr has been my primary physician for several years. He is a caring, sweet man. I am so sad for this situation he is in. Remember, innocent until proven guilty. Things are not always as they seem. I am holding him up in prayer.

        What a sweet guy. Whatever, he is a snake that obviously assaulted a woman. Don’t trust anyone who would hit a child or woman. He doesn’t have the guts to make it in the pen, so for his sake, you and others will buy his story and forgive and sponsor a trip to rehab. Too bad there is no rehab for liars and trash. Money can buy a lot of things, just not class.

    $4,000 in a back pack with two loaded pistols while going through a bitter divorce. The money was to pay someone to get rid of his wife with the guns that were coincidently unregistered.

      If you know something about this we all don;t, please contact the police, this is not a laughing matter.If you don’t let law enforcement know I am positive your comment will be tracked as you have already shown that you know the situation better than the rest.
