A Mountain Home man pled guilty to drug-related charges during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday and was sentenced to four years in prison.

Fifty-one-year-old Vernon Henson was arrested just 15 days ago when Mountain Home Police officers went to his residence along East 16th Street to serve a warrant in another matter.

The officers found Henson. They also found drugs and a number of items of paraphernalia used to ingest the drugs.

The drugs and drug paraphernalia were taken into evidence, and Henson was taken to the Baxter County Detention Center.

Henson has had a number of run-ins with the law. According to electronic court records, Henson has faced charges of aggravated assault, domestic battery, public intoxication, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
