Short Change Artists Make Out Like Bandits

  Let's get to our crime of the week. Jonesboro Police say these two men are short-change artists. JPD says they bought one item and when the clerk made change they went into their schtick, putting down more bills, and asking for change for them. It's a con game that confuses the clerk and nets the con artist big money. In this case, police say buying one little thing of hand gel netted them $290.

   If you know who either of these men are, call Crimestoppers right now, 935-STOP.

   Say "hello" to this week's Warrant Watchees. This is Jennifer Lee Grady. She's on the hook for 1 hot check warrant, 8 fail to appears and she's also wanted by the cops in Greene and Poinsett Counties for hot check violations.

   Michael A. Dowdy is a double-digit winner. He has 14 skeletons in his closet. 10 non-payment of fines and 1 revocation of probation, and 3 contempt of court warrants.

   If you know where the police can get their cuffs on Jennifer Lee Grady or Michael Dowdy, call Crimestoppers right now and tell police what you know. Call 935-STOP and get your tip number. It's your ticket to cash. Keep watching Crimestoppers to see if there is an arrest in your case, if there is, call or email Sgt. Steve McDaniel at JPD and tell him your tip number. He'll tell you if it's worth some Crimestoppers cash. Give 'em a call, and remember, when you see crime, call Crimestoppers. 935-STOP.
