From Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office reports
Theft reported at Conway home
A lawnmower was stolen from a residence along Caney Creek Road last week.
A 52-year-old woman filed a theft report regarding the missing lawn mower shortly before 3:15 p.m. Sept. 4, according to an incident report.
The lawn mower in question — a black Murray push mower valued at $124 — was taken sometime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sept. 3, the report states.
The woman told deputy Michael Lee the lawn mower was a recent purchase and that she had “only used it once.”
The woman did not have any leads as to who would steal the lawnmower, adding that she had “recently moved to the area and did [not] know anyone that could have stolen it.”
The lawnmower was logged as stolen in the National Crime Information Center, the report states.
Ex-employee fraudulently cashes old checks
A Greenbrier woman is accused of fraudulently cashing paychecks multiple times from her ex-employer.
According to an incident report, a 45-year-old woman called the sheriff’s office around 4 p.m. Sept.4 to file a theft report against an ex-employee.
The woman told police the suspect, Janie. L. Brazil, 20, of Greenbrier, was cashing checks she was issued a year ago that had already been cashed using a check app through her bank. Now, the woman in question was “using the same checks to get out more money.”
According to the report, the first check was $600 and the second was $197.
The complainant told deputy Terry Roper that her former employee cashed the previously-cashed checks at Arvest and Centennial banks.
After speaking with the complainant, Roper gave the woman the incident number associated with the report and told her to take it to her bank “so they could start an internal investigation,” the report states.
Damascus man upset about having to clean bedroom
The sheriff’s office was called to a residence in Damascus on Friday after a 20-year-old man reportedly threatened his mother with a firearm because she told him to clean his room.
The suspect’s sister-in-law called police because she was concerned about the Damascus couple, according to an incident report.
The sister-in-law called police shortly before 7 p.m. Friday after Hunter Brandon Harmon, 20, allegedly threatened his parents with a gun.
Harmon’s father told police the couple did not want the 20-year-old to come back to their home, adding that he “does not currently have a job and refuses to help around the house.”
Prior to yelling at and threatening his mother with a gun, Harmon agreed to clean his room in exchange for “a can of snuff,” or chewing tobacco, the report states.
The mother agreed to pick up some chewing tobacco for her son. However, when she returned home from a trip to the store, she saw her son had not yet cleaned his room. Because he had not cleaned his room, the report states she refused to hand over the chewing tobacco since he did not hold up his end of the deal.
At this point, Harmon “became extremely agitated” and began pushing a mop towards his mother and yelling obscenities.
As the 20-year-old began acting more aggressive, the mother told him to leave.
When he was told to leave, the report states that Harmon “grabbed a firearm” and told his mother that “if you are going to evict me and call the cops, we are all going out with a bang.”
The man’s mother told deputy Crystil Graham that her son did not point the gun at her or anyone else when he made this threat. Once her son left the home, she took the gun and put it in a safe.
Graham told the Damascus couple how to evict their son from the home and obtain a no contact order against him if they wished to do so.
