DECATUR — Bryn­ton New­ton, 26, of Westville, Okla., was ar­rested by Decatur po­lice in the predawn hours of Feb. 26 in connection with one felony count of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance with in­tent to de­liver and pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia, ac­cord­ing to Decatur po­lice re­ports.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice re­ports, Sgt. Ty Egge­brecht with the Decatur Po­lice De­part­ment saw a 2009 Dodge Charger parked in a no-park­ing zone near the Sim­mons Pro­cess­ing plant in Decatur about 4 a.m. on Feb. 26 and, when he ap­proached the car, it ap­peared to be un­oc­cu­pied. Egge­brecht parked be­hind the car and waited for the driver to re­turn. A short time later the car’s brake lights came on and Egge­brecht turned on his over­head lights to make a traf­fic stop.

Egge­brecht found New­ton had war­rants out of Siloam Springs and placed him un­der ar­rest.

In the car, Egge­brecht found eight ounces of mar­i­juana, a metal grinder, a glass smok­ing de­vice and a hy­po­der­mic nee­dle which field tested pos­i­tive for metham­phetamines, ac­cord­ing to po­lice re­ports.

New­ton was trans­ported to Ben­ton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter. The Dodge Charger was seized and may be for­feited in the case. New­ton’s cell phone was also seized as ev­i­dence.
