Six were arrested following a police saturation conducted by Faulkner County Sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday in the Mayflower area.
FCSO Chief Deputy Matt Rice said the saturation was the result of recent theft problems in the area.
Eight deputies made traffic stops and conducted interviews, and deputies were able to "get some good intel," in speaking with the public, Rice said.
Among those arrested were:
• Gerard W. Lewis, 27, of Mayflower, arrested on charges of failure to appear, possession of a firearm by certain persons and theft by receiving.
• Johnny L. Shadell, 36, of Mayflower, arrested and held for another county.
• Paula S. Enos, 39, of Conway, arrested on probation hold.
• Sally E. Eggers, 34, of Mayflower, arrested for endangering the welfare of a minor and default timepay of a misdemeanor fine.
• Bryan S. Emmerling, 52, of Vilonia, arrested for default timepay of a misdemeanor fine.
• Christopher Bondhus, 37, of Conway, arrested on probation hold.
Additional saturations in other areas of the county can be expected in the coming months. Faulkner County Sheriff Andy Shock has advised all deputies to "step up and be more proactive," Rice said.
The department is also asking the public to contact FCSO with any information on criminal activity in the county.
