Man Convicted On Drug Possession Charge

Hot Springs National Park

National Park News

Ranger Clint Forte contacted Gregory Everett and Destiny Price in the Gulpha Gorge campground for fee violations last January 29th. A few moments later, Everett fled, leaving Price behind with a vehicle, a stolen 9mm handgun, scales, and a distribution amount of marijuana. Price immediately seized the handgun from the vehicle and attempted to dispose of it in a nearby creek. After a foot pursuit, Forte and local officers captured Everett and later recovered the firearm from the creek. With the assistance of an NPS special agent, Everett and Price were charged in federal court. Price later confessed to the agent of interference and Everett's motive in possession of the marijuana and handgun. Everett pled to one count under 21 USC 841 on September 14th. On December 6th, he was sentenced to three months in jail, assessed court costs, and placed on three years’ supervised probation. Price is to be sentenced later. The recovered handgun was found to have been taken in a burglary about a month prior and will be returned to the legal owner.
