The Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's assistance with the investigation of two separate incidents of felony Theft of Property that have occurred at 3764 Highway 201 North.
The first incident occurred on July 31, 2009 when four (4) special order rolls of carpet padding, which are blue on both sides with vinyl on both sides, were stolen. These were valued at approximately $1,200.00.
On August 6th, deputies were called again to the same residence to take a report of several additional items that had been stolen. This time a Speck brand swimming pool pump valued at $2,700.00, an Echo brand chain saw, Model CS-400 valued at $200.00, and a push lawn mower from Home Depot valued at $199.00 had been taken. These items were stored in an out building on the property.
These thefts are under investigation, however little evidence has been obtained to further the course of the investigation.
The Sheriff's Office is asking for any member of the public having information concerning these thefts to contact the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at 870-425-7000 or leave a tip on the Sheriff's Office Tip Hot Line at 870-424-4636. All assistance will be greatly appreciated.
