JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A 911 tape was released by Jonesboro police Monday in connection of the robbery of the Dollar Tree on Nettleton Avenue and the kidnapping of the assistant manager, Laurie Pixler.

According to the 12-minute tape, dispatchers worked feverishly to get information from the caller. The dispatcher also worked to juggle multiple phone lines, getting information from the caller as well as talking to officers, who were working to get to the scene.
