14000 Maumelle Boulevard at 1144 Arnold Palmer Drive: On Aug. 29, Terry Lamar Hill, 40, of Conway was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine/cocaine, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, theft by receiving, false evidence of title or registration, driving on a revoked/suspended drivers license and improper evidence of registration. At approximately 3:51 p.m., Officer Jeremy Newlin saw a Black Dodge Ram pick-up truck traveling southbound on Highway 100 near south Odom Boulevard. Officers had received a tip about a dark colored extended cab pick-up truck being used in construction thefts in the area. Newlin ran the license plate through ACIC/NCIC and it returned on a green and yellow 1998 Dodge Ram belonging to Montoya Diggs or Terry Hill. Newling stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver, Hill. Hill said he was on his way to the hardware store from working a construction job in Conway. Hill gave his drivers license and registration on the vehicle. When asked why the registration showed the color to be green and yellow, Hill said he had the truck painted two years ago. Newlin noticed the truck had some light rust and dents.When Newlin compared the VIN on the dash with the VIN on the registration, he noticed the hood of the truck was faded, and seemed inconsistent with being painted within the last two years. The VIN plate on the dash matched the VIN on the registration, but Newlin thought the VIN plate on the dash did not look normal. The VIN plate was bent upwards and the rivets were rusted and slightly raised, looking like they were not attached to anything. Hill’s license showed to be suspended out of Pulask County Sheriff’s Office. Newlin told Hill to move his vehicle onto Arnold Palmer Drive and he complied. Sgt. Joseph Pool arrived on the scene and had Hill exit his vehicle where he was placed in handcuffs by Newlin. While inventorying the vehicle, Newling found a plastic thumb bag containing eight individually wrapped white powdery rocks under the driver’s seat among a pile of clothes. The thumb bag was clear on one side and on the other was a picture of red bulldogs. Next to the pile of clothes under the driver’s seat was a box containing clear plastic sandwich bags. There were also some sandwich bags in the driver’s side door pocket. Hill said he did not know the origins of the white powdery rocks. Hill was placed under arrest. Det. Chase Campbell arrived and Newlin attempted to verify the VIN on the dash with another VIN on the vehicle. Newlin looked for a VIN on the driver’s side door, but the sticker was missing. Officers found a VIN plate under the hood near the engine’s radiator. An ACIC/NCIC check of the number under the hood showed Russellville Police Department had reported the vehicle stolen. Officers found the same VIN displayed on the frame as well. Russellville Police Department confirmed the truck to be stolen and it was towed by Blue Hill Wrecker to be held for the Russellville Police. Hill was transported to the Maumelle Police Department. At the department, the white powdery rocks field tested positive for cocaine. Hill said the clothes under the driver’s seat were his and the plastic bags were his. Hill said the cocaine was not his though. Hill said he used the plastic bags to protect his cell phone from water. Hill was processed and transported to Pulaski County Jail. Hill was given a $50,000 bond.

Poole contacted the woman, Young. Poole told Young of the situation and asked for her driver’s license. She presented an Arkansas ID and said she had a driver’s license in her purse.

20154 Highway 365 North: On Aug. 30, Bobby Gill, 31, of Benton was arrested and charged with obstructing governmental operations. Officers were dispatched to 20151 Highway 365 North in regards to a possible domestic in a parking lot. While en route dispatch told officers a woman was running from a man toward the Waffle House. Upon arrival, Officer Justin Woods found Bobby Gill sitting in the driver seat of his vehicle, a Honda Civic, in the Shell parking lot. Woods instructed Gill to exit the vehicle and speak to him about the situation. Gill exited the vehicle and seemed nervous and apprehensive to comply to Woods’ commands. When asked if he had any weapons in his pockets, Gill put both of his hands in his front pants pockets and said “no.” Woods then instructed Gill to take his hands out of his pocket, which he complied. Woods told Gill to put his hands on the hood of his patrol vehicle, and told him that he was going to do a pat-down of the exterior of his clothing for weapons. While performing the pat-down, Gill gave consent to search his pockets. Gill asked what was going on and Woods told him that he was investigating a claim of domestic violence. Gill said he did not know what Woods was talking about. Gill said he and his wife , Keri Gill, had gotten into an argument but it was never physical. Officer Jeremy Newlin arrived on the scene at that point. Woods then asked Gill for his name and date of birth. Gill said he did not know why officers needed his name and date of birth. Woods told Gill that anytime officers went on call they had to do a report. Gill gave his name but would not give a date of birth. Woods asked Gill twice what his date of birth was and Gill ignored him. Woods then got closer to Gill and spoke louder and told him if he refused to tell his date of birth again, he would be placed under arrest for obstruction of governmental operations. At this point, Gill allegedly looked at Woods and turned away from him, telling Newlin that he was not going to speak anymore. Woods then told Gill to place his hands behind his back and placed his upper body on the hood of his patrol vehicle. Gill was arrested and put in the back seat. After sitting in the back seat, Gill finally gave his date of birth. An ACIC/NCIC check showed Gill to have an active warrant out of Grant County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear. Gill was taken to Maumelle Police Department for processing, where he was cited and released with a court date of Oct. 1. Grant County Sheriff’s Office took custody of Gill.
