Wednesday Evening Saturation
On Wednesday evening, 8/10/17, Faulkner County Sheriff Tim Ryals placed a saturation team of Criminal Investigators and Deputies in the area of Hwy 286 in Faulkner County. Sheriff Ryals has committed to saturating high-risk property crime areas to catch criminals and deter crime. The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Mobile Command Unit was utilized in this operation once again. Investigators and Deputies use probable cause to conduct traffic stops to make contact with subjects in violation of Arkansas state law.
Several arrests were made as a result of this saturation.
Maldonado Gonzales – 26 – Possession of Controlled Substance
Jackie Leach – 60 – Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Christopher Davis – 28 - Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Larry King – 43 - Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Failure to Appear Warrant
Sheriff Ryals will order further saturations based on crime statistics. It is the desire of the Sheriff to aggressively seek offenders who are stealing from the fine citizens of Faulkner County. Sheriff Ryals and his deputies patrol Faulkner County day and night, seeking to slow down theft and other crimes. Community members are encouraged to keep a watchful eye and report any suspicious activity. Anonymous tips can be made at www.fcso.ar.gov, and click on the CrimeTips tab.
