ASP, deputies search for suspect

Grant County Sheriff's Department and Arkansas State Police officers began a manhunt Sunday night that ran into Monday with no results after a male suspect fled from officers at a safety checkpoint set up on U.S. Hwy. 167 South.

Grant County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Pete Roberts said deputies were assisting ASP troopers on Hwy. 167 South around 9:30 p.m. when a vehicle traveling northbound approached the check point and turned around on officers and began fleeing. A chase ensued and the suspect crashed his vehicle at the new bypass area on Hwy. 167 South.

Roberts said the suspect then fled the vehicle on foot. The suspect is described as a black male approximately 6+ feet in height and weighing approximately 170-200 lbs. He is reported to have been wearing a tan or white colored hoodie.

The suspect’s vehicle, a Mercury Marquis, was registered to a subject out of the El Dorado area. Chief Deputy Roberts said narcotics were found inside the vehicle.

As of press time the suspect still had not been located.

Any information regarding this suspect should be immediately reported to the Grant County Sheriff's Department at (870) 942-2101.
