MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – Two men from Mountain Home are behind bars, after reportedly fleeing from police on Tuesday afternoon.
The Baxter County Sheriff department says they got a tip a wanted man, 60-year-old Ray Tolliver, was at a home in the 3-thousand block of Highway 5 in Mountain Home.
When officers arrived on scene they say Tolliver and another man, 39-year-old Chadwick Whitlow, began running from authorities.
A short chase gave way, but the two men were arrested about a 150 yards away from the home, according to the police report. During the search of the men, officers say they found six morphine pills on Whitlow’s person.
Both are being held in the Baxter County jail without bond until the two appear in court on February 11th.
