Golden Grotto’s skeleton stolen; $10,000 in meth found in safe; Reports released Thursday and Friday by JPD

A 10-foot-skeleton was stolen from Golden Grotto, a report filed just before noon Wednesday indicated. The massive skeleton sits out front on the hay bale on Red Wolf Boulevard, visible to thousands of drivers everyday. However, sometime over the last weekend, the skeleton was stolen.

It’s a 15-year-old prop that was purchased from Louisiana and the value of the item, over $1,000, makes the theft a felony. The skeleton is very unique, the report said, missing several fingertips off the left hand. Repair has been done to the shoulder blade and one of the knees. Because of the size and weight, it requires multiple employees to carry it to and from storage so it was not a “one man job.”

If you have any information or see the skeleton somewhere, contact JPD at 870-935-5657.

  1. Oh no, how horrible, someone stole an skeleton from Jungleboro’s largest satanic occult store!? Seriously, this spiritually deaf, dumb,and blind community sickens my very soul!
    The pagan pandemic here is much much worse than the Covid-19 issue for certain.

  2. Nothing but crime, and the real crime is that nothing is done about it unless the LEOs are forced to arrest somebody or even bother to stop crooks for citations. Jonestown sucks.

    • If you dislike Jonesboro so much, why live here? If you don’t live here, why worry about the police reports?
