An Arkansas man was arrested this weekend after police noticed that he had several photos of guns and drugs on social media accounts.
Local news station KAIT 8 reports that police first took notice of 22-year-old Andy Tacker of Tyronza, Arkansas, when they found that he had sold a gun that had been reported as stolen to a local pawn shop.
Upon looking at his social media pages, they found that he had posted multiple photos featuring firearms, illegal drugs, and money.
Police proceeded to conduct a search of his home and found a Century Arms RAS74 7.62 carbine rifle with a 50-round drum magazine and a 30-round magazine, a Masterpiece Arms MPA30T pistol with a weapon-mounted light, and two 30-round magazines. They also discovered less than an ounce of marijuana in his residence along with scales, baggies, and other drug paraphernalia related to both marijuana and methamphetamine.
Tacker’s Facebook profile shows that he is an outspoken second amendment advocate, and he’s posted videos touting gun owners’ rights from right wingers such as Ben Shapiro. Additionally, Tacker has posted memes on his page that attack undocumented immigrants.
He has been charged with the simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
