On January 22, 2018, deputies and officers with the Harrisburg Police Department executed a Search Warrant at Ricky Osban’s residence located at 800 Foch Street in Harrisburg, AR. The Search Warrant was the result of an investigation by deputies that spanned over several months. 

During the search of the residence, marijuana, digital scales, drug paraphernalia, a gun, and over $2,800.00 in cash and coins were seized. 

The shed located outside was searched and marijuana, several marijuana pipes, and a large bong were seized. It appeared the shed was being used as a marijuana smoking room.
