A man and woman accused of possessing a forgery device when arrested on outstanding warrants pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Crawford County Circuit Court.

James Edward Crippen, 45, and Chelsea Nichole Munholland, 23, both of Van Buren, are charged with five counts of fraudulent use of a credit or debit card, possession of a forgery device, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine.

Cpl. Bradley Wiley of the Van Buren Police Department served arrest warrants on Crippen and Munholland on March 21 while the two were sitting in a vehicle in the 400 block of South 12th Street.

Crippen was suspected of bringing drugs to Arkansas from California and the Judical task force was notified of his arrest, according to Wiley’s report.

Following an alert on the vehicle by a drug dog, drug task force officers found a bag containing a credit card reading machine, credit card making device and numerous credit, debit and gift cards along with methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The public defender’s office entered the not guilty pleas for Crippen and Munholland and waived formal arraignment before Judge Gary R. Cottrell.

Crippen remains in the Crawford County Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 bond.
