Fugitive Arrest

An officer observed a male suspect walking down a local avenue and ran his name through dispatch, discovering he had an active warrant out for his arrest. The officer stopped the suspect near a local business and informed him of the warrant. The suspect had two confirmed warrants out of Benton County Circuit Court, one for Criminal Trespass in the 2nd degree, and the other for providing false information to a Police Officer. The warrants were confirmed by the last four digits of the suspect’s social security number. The male suspect was then placed into handcuffs. When conducting a search for possible weapons, the officer discovered a glass pipe containing burnt marijuana residue. The officer was the contacted by the suspect’s Probation Officer, who informed the Police Officer that she was placing a detainer on the suspect. The suspect was then placed into the back of a police car and transported to the Benton County Jail, where he told staff he had not met with his Probation Officer in a long time. After filling out a booking sheet and showing the suspect copies of his warrants, the officer left. The officer later checked the Law Enforcement Data Systems and assured the warrants were removed.
