— 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.

"Hernandez, who was arrested shortly before 8 p.m., is a felon and is not a legal U.S. citizen, the report states"
So he's already been convicted of felonies in the past, isn't even a US citizen and STILL gets to stay in our country? He should have been deported after his last conviction. Good thing there was a law against haveing drugs and guns around schools... Look how this guy followed those laws..

Good thing they didn't tell us what the previous 'felony' was. I'm sure we'd all be trying to find out what JUDGE didn't apply the law appropriately... Any suggestions?

Don't worry if we had a list of people with guns I am sure he would have been on it. Isn't that right?
