On Sunday around noon officers responded to a retail business on Premier Boulevard about a woman causing a disturbance in the front of a business. She was located inside the business wearing a bra and shorts.

Officers determined the woman, who walked away and got in a parked vehicle, was possibly impaired and followed her for a welfare check.

Further investigation was conducted and the officers encountered 36-year-old Trevan Lacale Parker of Conway, the registered owner of the vehicle.

Officer M. Morris observed multiple pill bottles scattered throughout the vehicle and once Parker opened the driver's door he saw another bottle in the door pocket. 

When questioned about the contents of the bottle, Parker told Morris it was his medication.

Contained in the bottle was a folded piece of tin foil and a cut plastic straw with a white powdery substance determined to be fentanyl.

No further narcotics were found.

Parker was charged with possession of a schedule II narcotic and possession of drug paraphernalia. He received a $6,000 bond and July 25 district court date.

The woman was released with no charges and the rest of her clothes were in the vehicle.
