A Tulsa man who was arrested last year on suspicion of multiple drug offenses has had his bond forfeiture hearing extended.
Sebastian County Circuit Judge Stephen Tabor agreed to extend Angelo Latrice Harrington's bond forfeiture hearing for 60 days without objection on Wednesday. Harrington, who was arrested in Sebastian County in 2017, is suspected to have been in possession of multiple controlled substances, including heroin, at the time of his arrest, according to one law enforcement official.
Harrington was arrested Aug. 14, 2017 on suspicion of simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, trafficking methamphetamine, possession of a Schedule I or II controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and conspiracy to obtain or deliver methamphetamine, according to court records. Paul Smith, director of the 12th/21st District Drug Task Force in Arkansas, said he believes the Schedule I or II suspected substance field tested positive for heroin.
Smith said Harrington was also found with more than two pounds of meth, an ounce of powder cocaine, an ounce of crack cocaine, Adderall pills, hydrocodone pills and a firearm at the time of his arrest.
Harrington was scheduled to appear in Sebastian County Circuit Court in relation to the proposed bond forfeiture on Wednesday.
Harrington was released from the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center on Aug. 24, 2017, through First Arkansas Bail Bonds in lieu of a $75,000 bond. First Arkansas agent Ken McClernon said he and others at his agency accepted Harrington's bond request because they "had some decent people sign for him" and he was in the National Guard.
"It seemed like he would have been a good bond," McClernon said.
Along with failing to appear in court Wednesday, the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office also issued a felony failure to appear warrant for Harrington after he failed to show up to a January court date.
