Polk County Enterprise - April 2009
CORRIGAN — Stepped up patrols in north Polk County have led to about 30 arrests in the last two weeks. Nine of the arrests were narcotics-related. Approximately 35 warrants have been cleared by arrest and more than 50 citations were issued for various violations. On April 4, deputies responded to a tip concerning the possession and sale of narcotics at a residence on Market Street in Corrigan. During the initial interview of residents at that location, deputies gathered additional information and asked for consent to search the residence. The request was denied, deputies obtained a search warrant. During the execution of that search warrant, a small amount of “crack” cocaine and other drugrelated items were found. Jimmy Francois, Jessica Barber and Lynn Rainwater were arrested and taken to the Polk County Jail where they were all charged with possession of a controlled substance.
