Here are some “quick notes” from a visit this morning with Independence County Sheriff Shawn Stephens:
- A 2013 green Honda Rancher and miscellaneous tools were stolen from the Sunset Ridge area. The case is under active investigation
- An inmate at the Independence County Detention Facility attempted to stab a jail employee with a sharp object that is provided to inmates in accordance with jail standards. The attempt was unsuccessful. No injuries were sustained, and the case is now under investigation.
- There were two domestic-related calls with arrests made. One was in the Locust Grove area, and the other at Sulphur Rock. Charges are being filed in both incidents.
