A Caddo Valley man is being charged with possession of ecstasy following a warrant service and subsequent search of his vehicle.

Kebrecus Blakely, 30, of 287 Frost Road was arrested Oct. 20 after an officer with the Caddo Valley Police Department initiated contact with him. A search of his vehicle yielded 1.6 grams of MDMA (ecstasy) tablets, according to court documents filed this week at the Clark County Circuit Clerk’s Office.

According to an affidavit, Blakely was observed driving into the parking lot of Shell Service Station in Caddo Valley. The arresting officer, Sgt. Ashley Collier, reportedly had prior knowledge that Blakely was wanted by the Arkadelphia Police Department and also had a warrant from the state parole board.

Blakely was informed of the warrants and placed into custody, then Group 6 Narcotics agent Roy Bethell conducted a search of Blakely’s vehicle; Bethell noted in the affidavit that Blakely’s status as a parolee made him subject to search.

An inventory of the vehicle yielded a clear bag in the cupholder containing “numerous” colored pills identified as ecstasy. The suspected MDMA was sent to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for positive identification.

Possession of ecstasy/MDMA is a Class D felony.
