CLEBURNE COUNTY, Ark. – A man whose photo was shared by thousands of concerned citizens has been arrested.
On June 20, 2017, the Sheriff’s Office received several complaints about a male subject doing door to door solicitation. It was reported to deputies that a male, identified as Jeffrey Hergert, had gone to several residences, and also contacted several people by phone, claiming that they had won prizes to be delivered to their houses.
Late in the evening, a deputy spotted the man driving on the bypass in Heber Springs, and conducted a traffic stop. As a result of the investigation, Jeffrey was arrested and transported to the Cleburne County Jail.
He is being held on charges for harassment, harassing communications, and disorderly conduct.
All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
