Suspect charged with drug offenses and held for a parole violation
Published: March 18, 2015



On Tuesday, March 17th, officers with the Mountain Home Police Department, Arkansas State Police, and Department of Community Corrections conducted a home visit at an apartment located on Park Avenue in Mountain Home. The apartment is the residence of CHRISTOPHER L OSBORN (W/M 39).

Officers received information that a strong chemical odor was emitting from the apartment on multiple occasions and the tip suggested a clandestine methamphetamine lab was present inside the apartment. Upon arrival at the residence, officers located OSBORN and two other subjects in the living room area. Upon entering the apartment, officers found in plain view a spoon used to melt and ingest narcotics, digital scales, and a marijuana cigarette. During a further search, officers located a crystalline substance that field tested positive for the properties of methamphetamine and a quantity of drug paraphernalia used for the ingestion and sales of methamphetamine. OSBORN said he had used methamphetamine as recently as three days ago. OSBORN was incarcerated in the Baxter County Detention Facility. Initially, the bond was set at $5,000, but there is a hold for a parole violation by the Department of Community Corrections.

OSBORN was charged with:

  • Possession of a Controlled Substance, Class D Felony
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Class D Felony
