JONESBORO, Ark. – A Paragould man is accused of coming to Jonesboro to steal.
Jeremy Ryan Brown, 30, of Paragould, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Jonesboro. Jonesboro Police Department Officer Keith Baggett was dispatched at 2:30 p.m. to Target at the Mall at Turtle Creek in reference to an adult male shoplifter in custody by security.
The incident report states the suspect was observed by security going to the men’s department and picking out a man’s shirt and men’s handbag. He then allegedly went to the movie area where he picked out eight DVDs.
