NORTH LITTLE ROCK Police arrested a man Tuesday night after searching his apartment near a North Little Rock school and finding drugs and guns, according to a report.
North Little Rock police say Blas Hernandez, 37, is facing preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, simultaneous possession of drugs and guns, maintaining a drug premise in a drug-free zone and theft by receiving. He's due for an initial court appearance later Wednesday morning.
According to a report, investigators obtained a warrant and then searched Hernandez's apartment in the 2600 block of West 58th Street, which sits less than a quarter-mile from Amboy Elementary School.
Police say they found about a half pound of methamphetamine, a digital scale, plastic baggies, nearly $3,700 in cash and two handguns, including one that had been reported stolen out of Pulaski County.
Hernandez, who was arrested shortly before 8 p.m., is a felon and is not a legal U.S. citizen, the report states.
He is being held in the Pulaski County jail without bail pending the initial appearance in North Little Rock District Court.
