A Greenwood man arrested on a warrant a week ago was booked into the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center on suspicion of a slew of narcotics-related offenses, stemming from a two-month investigation.
Grant Colby Cacy, 28, was arrested during a traffic stop near city hall about 11 a.m. last Tuesday after he went to pay his water bill, said investigator Jerry Foley of the Barling Police Department.
Greenwood police stopped Cacy, who was wanted out of Fort Smith on a failure to appear warrant, and noticed what appeared to be a bag of methamphetamine sitting in his lap, Foley said.
Police searched Cacy’s vehicle and found items of drug paraphernalia before taking him to the Greenwood Police Department to be interviewed, Foley said.
After the interview, police obtained a warrant and searched Cacy’s residence at 104 Grand Magnolia Drive in Greenwood about 5:15 p.m., Foley said.
Authorities found several prescription narcotics, including Oxycodone, methadone, morphine, Xanax, Klonopin, steroids and 13 grams of methamphetamine, among others, Foley said. They also found numerous items of drug paraphernalia and equipment to manufacture marijuana at the home, and seized $38,060 in cash, Foley said.
The arrested stemmed from a two-month joint investigation of the Greenwood, Barling and Lavaca police departments, the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office and the 12th/21st Judicial District Drug Task Force, he said.
"The Drug Task Force had been doing surveillance on the residence for a couple months, gathering intelligence on him," Foley said. "We knew he had a warrant."
Investigators believe Cacy was operating a one-man narcotics operation, and was using an inheritance to supply a $200-a-day drug habit, Foley said.
Cacy was arrested without incident, but while investigators were searching the residence, 44-year-old Scott Smith showed up and immediately took off on foot when police attempted to detain him, Foley said. Greenwood police caught up to Smith and arrested him on suspicion of felony drug paraphernalia.
Authorities noted during the course of their investigation that Cacy frequently had visitors, Foley said.
Cacy was booked without bond on suspicion of 19 felony offenses, including possession of methamphetamine and several controlled substances with intent to deliver, drug paraphernalia, manufacturing marijuana, maintaining premises for drug sales and others.
Cacy has a trial date set for Monday, Foley said.
