An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday for a Fort Smith man charged with various drug-related felonies in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw. Jared Bartlett, 37, was charged Wednesday with unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, all felonies, and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. According to the District 27 Drug Task Force report filed with the charges, agents served a search warrant on March 20 at the county residence of Bartlett, off East 1000 Road. Investigators reported Bartlett spoke freely to them, and said he had been selling marijuana since 1995 to support his own marijuana habit. He said he was buying a half-pound of marijuana a week, for $400, from contacts in Fort Smith and selling it in half-ounce bags to pay for his own. The search of the residence uncovered some marijuana and some prescription pills. The report says Bartlett was not arrested at the time due to his cooperation with the investigators, and because he said he would work with Fort Smith police to uncover his supplier in Fort Smith. But, the report concludes, Bartlett told the investigators on four different occasions that his supplier would not contact him back, and he was not working with Fort Smith police as planned. The felony arrest warrant for Bartlett carries a $10,000 bond. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
