JONESBORO, Ark. – We are learning more about the Tuesday arrest of a former ASU football player with a troubled past.

The following is an exact copy of the probable cause affidavit filed in Craighead County District Court against Joshua Dewayne Jarboe on Nov. 16, 2016. 

“On 11/15/16 at approximately 0812 hours I was contacted by Officer Josh Beasley and David Stout. They advised me that they had been dispatched to 604 Melrose St. in reference to a domestic disturbance between a male and female. When they arrived they found that the subjects involved in the disturbance were at 602 Melrose St. Apt. # C.

They made contact with the female, Felica Vincent. Officers asked Vincent about the incident and then Officer Stout asked where the other party was. The female responded that the male subject was inside the apartment and upstairs. He then asked her to get him so they could figure out what was going on.

12482375_gWhen Ms. Vincent opened the door to the apartment the Officers were overwhelmed with the very strong odor of what they knew to be green Marijuana emanating from the inside of apartment C. The male subject, later identified as Joshua Jarboe, came outside to speak with Officer Stout as Officer Moore spoke to Ms. Vincent. Jarboe was ran through dispatch and found to have a felony bench warrant for his arrest from a previous drug charge. Jarboe was arrested and searched. He was found to have $5,068.00 in U.S. Currency in his pockets.

Officers made contact with me in reference to the strong odor of Marijuana coming from the apartment. I had them ask Ms. Vincent for consent to search her apartment and she advised that they could not search. An affidavit for a search warrant was prepared by this Agent and brought before Judge Boling for consideration. The search warrant was approved and signed by Judge Boling. I was contacted again by Officer Stout who advised me that they believed that Ms. Vincent’s roommate, Garry Williams, was upstairs in the apartment the entire time they had been there and when they went to check for him they found the window on the second floor opened where it appeared Williams had jumped out his window to the ground and fled the scene.

I then traveled to the area where I parked and was picked up by Officer Stout and brought to the scene at 602 Melrose St. Apt. C. I then spoke to Ms. Vincent and advised her of who I was and I then advised her that I had a search warrant for her apartment. I began searching the first floor with Officer Josh Beasley. I opened the refrigerator and located a rubber maid plastic container in the shelf which appeared to contain large quantity of suspected Marijuana. This was 465 grams and 7 grams of Marijuana. I then located a brown cardboard box on the kitchen floor. The box contained numerous misc. items and also a large plastic bag of Marijuana and a small baggy of Marijuana. This was 209 grams and 2.8 grams of Marijuana.

In the open kitchen pantry I located a small box of sandwich baggies, a box of large gallon sized storage bags, two Ziplock vacuum sealer machines, and numerous plastic containers similar to what the Marijuana in the refrigerator was stored in. A case to a Ruger pistol was located sitting beside the living room couch. Officer Beasley located a priority mail box in the pantry that contained a set of digital scales that appeared to be covered in Marijuana.

Officer Casey Moore searched the upstairs area and located a backpack in Felica Vincent’s bedroom. This backpack appeared to belong to Joshua Jarboe due to the contents being a males deodorant, boxers, and other belongings. Inside this bag the Officer located a 9mm Smith and Wesson hand gun. Officer David Stout and Casey Moore began a search of Garry Williams bedroom and located a .22 Caliber pistol laying on the bed with 13 rounds of ammunition in the magazine and one round chambered. There was also a plastic container on the bed which contained 29 grams of Marijuana. Officer Stout also located a red duffle bag in the closet which contained a plastic container with several large bags of Marijuana inside. The bags of Marijuana were all weighed at a later time and were found to be 61 grams, 120 grams, and 223 grams, I searched a jacket hanging in Williams closet and located $1,800.00 in U.S. Currency in the inside pocket. It is believed that the Marijuana located in the downstairs kitchen area belonged to both Felica Vincent and Joshua Jarboe.

When Officer Stout first asked Jarboe to step outside to speak with him he was walking into the living room from the kitchen area. It is believed that the money located on Jarboe’s person and what was found in Williams bedroom are the proceeds from drug sales. This money was seized.

Both Vincent and Jarboe have keys to the 602 Melrose St. Apt. C address. There also was a rental car parked outside the apartment that had been rented in Garry Williams name. Vincent and Jarboe were both arrested and transported to the Craighead County Detention Center.

Vincent will be charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Purpose to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Simultaneous Possession of Drugs and a Firearm.

Jarboe will be charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Purpose to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of a Firearm by a Certain Person and Simultaneous Possession of Drugs and a Firearm.

A warrant will be issued for Garry Williams arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Purpose to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Simultaneous Possession of Drugs and a Firearm.”

Jarboe’s next scheduled court appearance is 8:30 a.m. Dec. 30.
