From Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office reports
A Mayflower woman contacted the sheriff’s office last week after she was scammed online out of $1,200.
According to an incident report, the 53-year-old complainant was scammed by another eBay user earlier this year.
The woman called police just after 2 p.m. July 8 stating she attempted to buy a 2005 Camaro through a woman named Jennifer O’ Conner on eBay on April 6. O’ Conner had asked the complainant to send her $1,200 on eBay cards in exchange for the vehicle, according to the report.
According to the agreement, the alleged victim was supposed to receive the vehicle on April 11. However, she told deputy Charles Wilks that O’ Conner never brought her the vehicle.
Following the incident, the Mayflower woman said she contacted eBay representatives but was told “their department could not assist” and that she would need to file a claim through the bank.
Couple doesn’t feel welcome in new subdivision
A Conway couple has reportedly been harassed by a neighbor who is unhappy that the two are building a home within the Ridge Pointe subdivision.
One of the two alleged victims went to the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office around 4 p.m. July 9 to file the harassment report, according to an incident report.
The 35-year-old woman told deputy Jennifer Hillman she and her husband are building a home within the subdivision and in doing so, have been harassed by one of the area residents.
The man who has reportedly harassed the local couple is a member of the subdivision’s Property Owner’s Association and has sent the couple and other homeowners “in reference to his disapproval of the construction of their home.”
In her statement, the woman said she “understands the civil portion of the dispute” but also that Anthony Wilmington’s actions “have crossed over into criminal harassment.”
According to the incident report, Wilmington has “mad threats” about having the woman’s husband’s “security clearance pulled,” which would cause the 41-year-old to lose his job. The couple also alleges Wilmington of “calling the bank and telling them [the couple is] defrauding the bank and [is] harassing the builder and any other construction crews that arrive to work on the house.”
At the last POA meeting, Wilmington “became verbally abusive and stood in a posture that she felt was threatening,” the woman told deputy Hillman, according to the incident report.
Hillman gave the woman the incident number associated with the case and told her how to contact the prosecutor’s office regarding the matter to file charges if she wished to do so.
Woman accused of trespassing at Faulkner County home
A Heber Springs woman is accused of showing up at her former roommate’s house and welcoming herself inside at night.
According to an incident report, a Quitman resident filed a trespassing report with the sheriff’s office last week regarding a woman who used to live with him who recently began showing up at his home unannounced.
The complainant said the woman used to live with him “for a while” but that Shannon D. Archer “moved out in March.”
“He said she continues to come back to his house in the middle of the night even though he has told her several times that she is not welcome at his house,” deputy Jennifer Hillman wrote in her report after speaking with the complainant.
Hillman advised the Quitman man to contact police immediately the next time Archer showed up at his home uninvited, according to the report.
