Crawford County arrests the Johnson County Sheriff on drug and firearms-related crimes



Little Rock, Arkansas – Johnson County Sheriff Jimmy Stephens was taken into custody just one week after a successful cocaine seizure that brought an undercover investigation that lasted several months to a close.

On Saturday, Stephens was detained in Crawford County on suspicion of possessing both drugs and a firearm.

Sheriff Jimmy Stephens was taken into custody, according to ASP troops, according to ASP spokesman Bill Sadler.

Sadler claims that during a traffic stop, the troopers discovered Stephens to be in possession of both drugs and firearms. He is now accused of having the things in his possession at the same time.

Stephens’ detention at the Crawford County Detention Center has been confirmed by Sadler.
