The following incidents were gathered from reports filed at the Arkadelphia Police Department and Clark County Sheriff’s Office. Names of arrested individuals were collected at the Clark County Detention Center on Crittenden Street in Arkadelphia. They are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. The Arkadelphian does not withhold names from the arrest log, so don’t even think about asking.

A Maumelle woman reported someone in custody of her driver’s license, which had been stolen in December 2022, falsely identified herself during a March traffic stop in Arkadelphia. The unidentified driver received a speeding ticket, leaving the complainant to receive a court appearance notice in the mail. An officer ran the speeder’s license plate number through the state’s criminal information center to find the vehicle is registered to a Little Rock woman, who is named in the report although the report notes the suspect has not yet been identified.
The theft of two bicycles was reported at a North 22nd Street residence. The complainant had located one of the stolen bikes but allowed the thief to keep it.

Officers responded to an apartment complex on Twin Rivers Drive for a report that tenants had too many visitors and were coming and going from the apartments as they pleased. Officers, having responded to this location numerous times of late for bogus reports, advised the complainant she would receive a citation if she continued calling for non-urgent complaints. Her response was “Go ahead and write a ticket” so she got one.
