MARMADUKE, AR - Marmaduke police have made another arrest in relation to fraudulent schemes associated with tornado relief projects in the storm-torn Greene County town.
According to police chief Steve Franks, 19-year-old Justin May was arrested yesterday on five counts of theft of property. Franks says May allegedly went to the Crowley's Ridge Development Council and told them he was a victim of the April 2 Marmaduke tornado, and needed somewhere to stay. The CRDC provided lodging for May at the Ramada Inn of Paragould, and gave him a $50 Wal-Mart gift card. Franks says May was not a Marmaduke resident at the time of the tornado, but instead lived in Paragould.
