The arrest of Destiny Dawn Reasons of Mountain Home on new drug-related charges came shortly after she was released from prison.

The 23-year-old Reasons was one of six people arrested in the same residence on Sept. 8 when officers went to an address along South College Street to conduct a compliance visit. All of those arrested appeared in Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday and entered not guilty pleas to the charges against them.

In addition to Reasons, those picked up at the South College Street residence were 21-year-old Chris Spicer, 32-year-old Stephen Burkhart, Kristen Kemp and Eric Olsen, both 34-years-old, and 42-year-old Robbi Roberson.

All of those arrested list a Mountain Home address except Spicer, who was listed on the Baxter County jail log as living in Jonesboro.

According to probable cause affidavits filed in the cases, the six people indicated they all stayed in the residence.

The officers reported finding approximately 50 used syringes, glass smoking pipes and a digital scale. According to the probable cause affidavit, the syringes were found in every room in the house. Some were in an empty laundry detergent container, a Mountain Dew bottle, between mattresses, on top of dressers and in closets.

Reasons was sentenced to two years in prison in late February. Arkansas Department of Correction records show she was received into the system March 17.

Seventy-two days later, she was released under provisions of the Emergency Powers Act, passed to relieve overcrowding in the system. She was free until rearrested Sept. 8.

When Roberson was going through the process of entering his plea, he summed up his case by telling the court, “wrong place, wrong time.”
