Second arrest this month for MH man

A Mountain Home man was arrested Tuesday for the second time this month.

According to the Mountain Home Police Department incident report, 31-year-old Zachary Roy Bales was arrested after law enforcement received information he was en route to Gassville and believed to be armed with a firearm.

After confirmation Bales had a valid felony arrest warrant, police officers made contact with him in a vehicle in a grocery store parking lot. He was arrested, and a search of his vehicle revealed a glass pipe with crystal-like residue.

Online records with the Baxter County Detention Center indicate Bales has been charged with felony offenses of possession of drug paraphernalia and theft by receiving. No details on the theft charge have been made available. Bond was set at $6,000.

Earlier this month, Bales was one of two Mountain Home residents arrested after a probation home compliance check by the Baxter County Sheriff's Office and the Mountain Home Police Department. According to Sheriff John Montgomery, 32-year-old Tiffany Cortez-Lynn and 31-year-old Zachary Bales were taken to the Baxter County Detention Center from their residence on Voorheis Drive and booked on a felony count of possession of methamphetamine with purpose to deliver and two felony counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $25,000 for each suspect.
