JONESBORO, Ark. – While most never exceeded the ethical standard of cheating the diet over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, some went to the lengths of stealing more than an extra helping in Craighead County, reports from the sheriff’s office show.
At 7:56 PM Friday evening. November 23, “Black Friday” had a different meaning for the residents of a home on County Road 309, Jonesboro address. The day before was Thanksgiving and approximately 25 people gathered at the home. At 6 PM Thanksgiving Day, the medication was noticed missing. 75 Xanax pills were gone. The family said they didn’t know who could have committed the crime, with so many having been there the day before. The case was investigated but the investigative details were masked from public view.
At 4:02 PM Sunday evening, November 25, an attempted break-in was reported near the 400-block of County Road 752, Jonesboro address. After returning from a trip to Branson, Missouri, the 66-year-old woman realized the blinds to her window were “messed up.” She approached the window and said she noticed some glass had been broken out. When she checked outside, the exterior door leading to the garage appeared to be pried on. Deputy Taylor Iglehart also observed the door appeared it had an attempt made to pry it open with some kind of tool. The potential victim didn’t report anything stolen but she completed a witness statement. The crime scene was photographed.
Unfortunately, a theft was apparently successful for the criminals responsible for targeting a Bono man according to a report taken Sunday evening. Back on October 1, a felony breaking or entering at the 200-block of County Road 353 was initially reported but the 72-year-old resident thought nothing was missing. In the days that followed, the victim began to notice several items were gone. A STIHL brand pole saw, saddle bag, weed eater, and battery charger were reported stolen. He made the updated report with the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office.
