Deputies Busy in Greers Ferry Area

 

During the past week Deputies from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office have responded to three separate incidents in the Greers Ferry area.

At 01:53 AM, February 21st Heber Springs Police Department dispatched a call that the commercial burglar alarm at Cornerstone Pharmacy in Greers Ferry had gone off. Deputies responded and when they arrived at the scene found the front window broken out. Surveillance video from the store shows two males entering the store and then fleeing immediately after the audible alarm sounded. Detectives are currently pursuing leads as to the identity of the two and ask that anyone with any information please contact the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office. 

Detectives are currently investigating a report of an Aggravated Robbery which occurred Thursday, February 23rd on Long Hill Road. The two suspects, who have not been identified at this time, are a slim white female, believed to be in her 20’s, with brown hair, who identified herself to the victim as “Nikki”, and a medium build  male subject who was wearing a mask. The two were last seen leaving the area in a white older model Pontiac which has the driver’s side rear view mirror broken loose from the vehicle. Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to please contact the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office.

Shortly before 1:00 PM Deputies were dispatched to a report of two suspicious males in the Bud Creek area. The two, Heath Myers, age 21 from Fordyce, AR and Anthony Riddle, a 21 year old Greers Ferry resident were located and stopped driving a Chevrolet pickup on Section Line Road.

The owners of the residence were contacted and identified a Remington shotgun that was in the possession of Myers and Riddle at the time they were stopped.
