All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police Corporal Rostan reports that he was dispatched to the 300 block of Quapaw Avenue  for the call of trespassing on September 7th, 2020 at approximately 10:24pm.

Officers arrived and saw a female, later identified as Parolee Amber Lynn Martin, 45, of Little River 39 in Ogden, walking quickly and pushing a stroller down an alley and away from the scene. Officers walked down the alley and saw Parolee Martin getting into a camper behind an uninhabited building.

Officers located the stroller which appeared to have been thrown. Two bags that fell out of the stroller were discovered by officers. A zip lock bag containing meth (approximately 0.6g) and a second plastic bag containing meth (approximately 0.2g) were located in plain view.  Officers then made contact with Parolee Martin in the camper.
