Social media helps deputies make arrest

GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Social media helped the Greene County Sheriff’s Department make an arrest. 

Misty Carrick was wanted for two warrants out of Greene County. One was for possession of meth with purpose to deliver and the other was for possession of drug paraphernalia.

The department posted a picture of Carrick to Facebook and within just a few hours they had her in custody.

Sheriff David Carter said his department uses Facebook often to keep the public informed and sometimes ask for their help.

He said social media is a very important tool for his deputies and the community seems to like knowing what the department is doing.

“We want the people to know what we are doing and what we are doing to protect their communities,” Crater said. “I get compliments on it everyday people love it.”

Carter said he wants to thank community for their help and support.

He said the department gets several messages a day about tips or people simply thanking his deputies for their hard work.
