According to JPD, Steve Oldham of Quitman is under investigation for making verbal threats against a woman. Jonesboro Police say Oldham has no formal warrants against him, and will only be arrested if he violates a protection order filed in Craighead County.

The dispatcher with the Poinsett County Sheriff's Office said officers were looking for a silver 2000 Chevrolet Impala driven by Oldham. No tag information was available.
