An attempt by Ardmore police to serve an arrest warrant Monday took an unexpected turn, resulting not in the arrest of the suspect for which they were looking, but two others on methamphetamine charges.
Sgt. Ryan Hunnicutt, APD public information officer, said officers went to a residence located in the 1000 block of D Street SE. They went into the house in search of the suspect. They found 19-year-old Brittanie Christian and 28-year-old Jonathan Davoult, both in possession of methamphetamine. The pair was arrested without incident and booked into the Carter County Detention Center.
Tuesday the couple was formally charged with felony possession of a controlled dangerous substance, as well as misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Court records also show Davoult faces outstanding warrant charges for failure to pay fines and costs in a series of misdemeanor cases.
Both made initial court appearances before Special District Judge Thomas Baldwin Tuesday afternoon. Bonds were set at $10,000 each.
Wednesday CCDC records showed both remained detained pending the posting of bond.
Preliminary conferences are set for 9 a.m. Sept. 17.
