Man arrested after calling 9-1-1, asking to show police his meth


A Texarkana man is currently in custody after calling 9-1-1 and asking to show officers his methamphetamine.

James Harmon, 59, allegedly asked an emergency dispatcher to send police to his home Nov. 29 so he could show his methamphetamine stash to officers, court records show. Police who responded to Harmon’s call that day noted he had a non-usable amount of what appeared to be an illicit substance and left Harmon’s residence without taking any action.

Harmon allegedly called 9-1-1 again the next day, asking again to show police officers his methamphetamine. When officers came to Harmon’s residence Nov. 30, he allegedly showed them a usable amount of what appeared to be methamphetamine. At that time Harmon was taken into custody and is currently being held in the Miller County jail.

Possession of methamphetamine is punishable by up to six years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
