Valentine's Day Arraignment Set In Drug Cases

A February 14th court date has been set for three local residents, charged with promotion of methamphetamine.  Authorities say the three were arrested after they investigated a report of intoxicated individuals causing a disturbance at Walgreens.  Police claim they found pseudoephedrine pills, lithium batteries, and other components common to the manufacture of meth in the suspects' vehicle.  They were identified as 29-year-old William Joseph Pedigo of Baxter, 25-year-old Daniel Lynn Kirby of Sparta, and 25-year-old Andrea Jade Wilhite of Baxter. Each was jailed under a $5,000 bond, pending their court appearance. Wilhite had reportedly been arrested earlier this month for violating probation in another case.
