JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Jonesboro Police Department has obtained warrants for arrest for a pair of suspected thieves. According to Detective Shay Racy of JPD, warrants have been issued for the arrest of Demario Hunt and Chris Sides Jr. They are wanted for a pair of purse-snatching cases from late last year.

Detective Racy notes that Demario Hunt has made postings on social media about "killing cops" and should be approached with caution. 

The notice from JPD continues to say the pair may be in Jonesboro or Wynne.  They may also be driving a black Lincoln Zephyr.  The pair may also be in an older model Yukon or Tahoe with damage to the passenger's side light.

If you have any information as to where either of these men may be call your local police or sheriff's department.  You can also call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.  Your tip could earn you a cash reward.
