JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  Tommie Turner, a 19-year-old from Forrest City also called Pepa, was arrested and charged in connection with a residential burglary and a robbery both reported in December of last year.

On December 2, Freddie White, Jr. reported a burglary on Annette Street. The FCPD executed a search warrant in their investigation of the burglary and recovered some of the stolen property at which time Turner became a suspect.
