Man Robs Store With 2X4

   This is the greatest Crimestoppers ever! It happened last Saturday at Bill's Fresh Market Express on south Stadium. The suspect robs the store with a 2x4!

   Our suspect is already in the store. We'll call him 'The Shadow' because of the ski mask and black sheet he's wearing. He's confronted by the clerk, who was mopping the floor and it turns into a duel. The clerk doesn't back down from the man in black. Poking at him with the mop while the shadow just beats the tar out of the cash register. The Shadow knocks the register to the floor and the clerk still doesn't back down, taking him on until The Shadow blows past him, picking up the register and running out the door with the register tape trailing behind.

   The register only had about $200 in but it was worth about $2500. If you know who the stick-carrying suspect is, call Crimestoppers 935-STOP. No one will ask your name and if your tip can shed a little light on the identity of 'The Shadow' it's worth cash.

   This week's featured Warrant Watch pair is good for almost 30 warrants. Randy Irvine goes first. He has 3 fail to appear, 3 non-payment of fines, and 11 hot check warrants. He is also wanted in Searcy, Poinsett County, Lonoke County and in Bald Knob.

   Thomas Williams is only wanted in one town. Jonesboro police have him for 11 non-payment of fines warrants. If you know where police can find Randy Irvine or Thomas Williams you can let them know safely and anonymously. Call Crimestoppers right now, 935-STOP or toll free, 888-566-STOP. Your call is not recorded, no one will ask your name. Just tell 'em what you know, it could be worth cash. And remember, when you see crime, call Crimestoppers, 935-STOP.
