CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Shots were fired and no one was hurt. However, there were nearly 5,000 people affected by the crime.  

Over the weekend, someone used a utility pole for target practice with a shotgun.  

The damage knocked out power to over 4,900 people.

Now, Craighead Electric is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible.

It may seem like a simple act of vandalism but shooting up transmission lines is a very dangerous crime.  

According to Craighead Electric’s CEO, it's actually considered a federal crime.

If you can tell police who used the utility pole as target practice, call Crimestoppers.

This week on Warrant Watch, Jonesboro police need your help tracking down two people with multiple warrants.

Rosie Allen has nearly 30 warrants.

She has 19 for contempt and 10 for public service.

Demarcus Johnson has a dozen warrants and majority of them are for contempt of court.

If you can help police with any of these cases, it's worth money.  

Call in that tip to Crimestoppers, anonymously, at 935-STOP.

You can also text your tip at 274637.

Type in “935stop” followed by your tip. Then you’ll get a message back from Crimestoppers with your anonymous tip number.

This is yours to keep for any future reward. That's how Crimestoppers works.
