On December 16 around 12:30am, Sergeant Simpson, Deputy Stringer and Deputy Wagner of the Garland County Sheriff’s Department were on patrol and parked near the intersection of Highway 7 North and West Glazypeau. Wagner noticed a four-wheeler with two people on it driving with no lights Northbound on Highway 7. The parolee rider and passenger were found to be in possession of meth and drug paraphernalia.

Wagner got behind the four-wheeler and tried to initiate a traffic stop, but when he activated his blue lights the driver began to flee.

The four-wheeler crossed over East Glazypeau Road into a small pasture and headed towards Walmart. Wagner turned around and headed towards Burl Road, beside Walmart, to look for the four-wheeler.

Simpson turned down Burl Road and found the four-wheeler in a ditch at 104 Burl Road.

Wagner then saw Seth Moody, 44, of Springer Boulevard in Little Rock, running down the road towards him.

Wagner activated his blue lights again and Moody began to flee on foot back towards Walmart.

Wagner and Stringer exited Wagner’s vehicle and began to chase Moody on foot. They were able to catch up to him and arrest him after a short chase.

Wagner found 1.1 grams of methamphetamine in Moody’s front left pocket and a straw with methamphetamine residue in his front right pocket.

Wagner and Stringer walked over to the four-wheeler and spoke with the passenger, Manerva Walls, 33, of Little Blakely Creek Road in Jessieville.  Stringer found a glass pipe and .4 grams of methamphetamine in her right jacket pocket.
