Police find guns, drugs and moonshine during probationer check

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – CBS affiliate 5NEWS reports that a Highfill couple was found with guns, drugs and a moonshine still during a compliance check on Friday.

41-year-old Jason Vanhook and his wife, 43-year-old Kim Vanhook, were arrested in connection with seven counts of possession of firearms by certain persons.

Kim Vanhook, an active probationer, also faces several misdemeanor drug possession charges, while her husband faces an additional felony charge of possessing an illicit still.

Highfill police were assisting Arkansas Community Corrections when officers discovered a still, seven firearms, methamphetamine and marijuana at the Vanhook’s home on Arkansas 264, said Highfill Police Chief Blake Webb.

Jason Vanhook told police he uses the still “for moonshine,” adding that he “didn’t know that was illegal,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

Jason Vanhook is free on a $10,000 bond. Kimberly Vanhook was being held Monday at the Benton County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
