The Sentinel-Record reports Lance Lee Pace called 911 on Sunday night after reportedly “hearing buzzing noises” over his house in Hot Springs for about an hour.

Pace allegedly admitted to a Garland County sheriff’s deputy he had “snorted meth” about an hour before calling 911, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Pace was arrested after he called 911 around 4:20 a.m. Monday to again complain about hearing a drone flying.

He was arrested Tuesday (Jan. 21) for Communicating False Alarm. He is at the Garland County Detention Center on a $2,000 bond.
