     JAMEY DARREN ROOF, 48 years old of rural Mountain Home, was arrested Wednesday afternoon at approximately 3:30 PM on outstanding warrants at 93 CR 605 by Sheriff John Montgomery.  This occurred after the Sheriff’s Office received a citizen tip via Facebook that ROOF was at that residence.

     After accessing the Leads On Line database, Investigators found that JAMEY ROOF had pawned these items to a Mountain Home Pawn Shop.  These items collectively were valued at approximately $800.   Investigators then obtained a warrant for his arrest.
