LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a man who made himself at home in someone else’s storm shelter.

On Thursday, Oct. 13, a woman called dispatch to report finding two men on her property in the 200-block of North Hendrix Street in Imboden.

When deputies arrived, the men had already left.

During a search of the woman’s property, deputies found clothing, firearms, and controlled substances in the storm cellar.

The woman said the items did not belong to her.

According to a news release from Detective Andrew Turner, it appeared that someone had been staying in the storm cellar.

Using the items gathered at the scene, Turner says they have developed a “person of interest.”

No arrests have been made at this time.
