A Missing Person is Found Stealing Flatscreen TVs

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A missing person is found.  The only problem, he's stealing flatscreen tvs from Wal-Mart.  We'll get to that twisted tale in a minute, but first, a stamp.

Crystal Hill was on warrant watch last week for her 9 warrants.  Stamp her!

Now, a very odd story.  Two weeks ago, Larry Joe Garrett was declared a missing person by police.  He was last seen in Little Rock after borrowing a friend's car.  Now, Larry Joe Garrett and that car have shown up in Jonesboro and police say he's stealing tvs from Wal-Mart.

And he has an accomplice.   JPD and Wal-Mart loss prevention say the video shows them loading up a $700 flatscreen and walking right out the front door with it.  Later that same day, Garrett and his accomplice come back and try to get another one.  This time, loss prevention stops them before they can get the tv out the door, but Garrett and his friend get away. Garrett was also spotted at the Wal-Mart in Trumann trying the same thing.  In a snapshot, he is wearing glasses.  I mentioned the car because it kind of sticks out:  A white Buick Century with a hubcap missing.

Police want to know where to find Larry Joe Garrett.  They also want to know the name of the man he's working with.  If you can tell JPD where Larry Joe Garrett is hiding out or who his accomplice is, call Crimestoppers right now, 935-STOP(7867).  Your calls are anonymous.

On to Warrant Watch.

Jacob Terrell gets the top slot.  15 warrants will do that.  He has 2 revocation of probation, 10 contempt of court and 3 public service work warrants out of JPD.

Billy Ray Williams doesn't have a tiny list.  He has three lines.  1 failure to appear, 7 non-payment of fines and 4 public service work warrants.

Help police get their hands on Billy Ray Williams and Jacob Terrell and get some cash.  Call Crimestoppers right now, 935-STOP (7867).  If you see me give your suspect the stamp, call or email Sgt. Steve McDaniel at JPD and give him your tip number.  He'll tell you how to get your money.

Remember, when you see crime, call Crimestoppers, 935-STOP.
