Miller County Sheriff's Office News

The Garland, AR liquor store burglary suspect has been identified. He's in-custody in another jurisdiction/State. The Toyota Tundra was also found. The Miller County Sheriff's Office will pursue an arrest warrant for commercial burglary and theft of property. Additional charges may follow. We received several calls from the public about this case. The Sheriff's Office appreciates everyone who shared our post and those of you who contacted us.

The Miller County Sheriff’s Office needs your help identifying a man who broke into a liquor store in Garland City, Arkansas on October 12, 2018 at 1:40 am. While we realize the photos aren’t the best quality, perhaps someone can identify the suspect. The white male used a silver or grey Toyota Tundra truck to force the store door open. The truck had a diamond plate tool box mounted in the truck bed and a chrome tailgate with a 5th wheel cut out. The white male is bald on the front and top portions of his head and has short hair on the back and sides. He appears to have a scruffy looking beard; possibly red or dirty blonde hair. If you have any information about this man’s identity you are asked to call Miller County Investigator Sam McJunkins at 870-774-3001 extension 117. ***The tailgate in the photo may not be exactly like the tailgate on the Tundra; however, it's similar.
