Sheriff’s office seeks help in identifying suspect

The Lonoke County Sheriff’s office needs information to help identify someone who may be involved in a theft; the clue is a unique baseball cap. The theft is one of two reported near Cabot in one day.

According to a sheriff’s office press release, the first report was made at about 9 a.m., Oct. 14.

The report was of a 2000 Jeep Cherokee stolen at a Woodland Drive residence near Cabot. The Jeep is a silver four-door model, and was stolen between 8:30 p.m., Oct. 13 and 9 a.m. Oct. 14. Investigators believe there was also an attempt to remove a stereo from a truck parked next to the Jeep.

The second report, made at about 2 p.m., was of theft of property from a vehicle on Jeffrey Lane near Cabot. Numerous pieces of hunting equipment and a .243 rifle were taken. There was also an attempt to steal an all-terrain vehicle, but it ran out of fuel in a nearby field.

Investigators found a white on black baseball cap, decorated with a cartoon profile similar to Mickey Mouse, which may have been dropped at the scene by a suspect.

Other possible evidence was collected for processing fingerprints.

Anyone knowing who may have worn a hat as shown in the photo, particularly if the hat is no longer in the person’s possession, is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (501) 676-3000.
