Stuttgart Police Department News

The Stuttgart Police Department has received numerous calls & Facebook messages in reference to a facebook post by a user ‘Ray Andres’. The post references potential school violence to a “SHS”. While we take these threats very seriously, it has been reported the origination of the post to be in Kentucky. There are news articles and social media post from all over the country today about this post. We do not believe this to be a credible threat to our school system. The School resource officer, Police and school officials are aware of the incident. I have attached screenshots of the threatening posts along with the posts from other agencies across to country about it just so there is no confusions about what I’m explaining. We will take necessary measures to ensure the safety of our school children and staff. Thanks, Lt. Mark Duke

Just so everyone knows there are officers inside the schools and officers watching over the drop offs and entrances. You may not see them but they see you. If you are interested in volunteering your time to your child’s school or any school for that matter please contact that schools administrator and see what you can do. WatchDog Dad’s, Reading to the youngsters, crossing guards, help monitor the front doors, drop-offs and bus stops...there’s plenty of room for volunteers. Let’s all make our schools safe.

Please join us on Friday, February 9, as we honor one of our own, Assistant Chief Steven Bobo. We’ll be gathering in the courtroom here at Stuttgart Police Dept from 2:00 until 3:30. Everyone come out and wish him well in his new adventure!!

Happy New Year from our family to yours!! ➖💙➖ (Photo: Jim Gignac)

On October 3, 2017, S.R.O. Paul Colvin was told by a student that another student had made a comment that involved a gun threat. The threat came from a student who had already been suspended. S.R.O. Colvin contacted Stuttgart High School officials and S.P.D. Investigators. After a thorough investigation and interviews were conducted it was determined that the allegations were completely false and had been blown out of proportion. From all of us at S.P.D. and on behalf of the S.H.S. staff, we do no take any comments about violence as a joke and they will not be tolerated.

PRESS RELEASE On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, acting upon a tip, Stuttgart Police Detectives made contact with individuals in the 1000 Block of North Porter in regards to a “ping” from a recently stolen electronic device. Once making casual contact with the resident and other individuals who were already standing outside, items of interest were noted by Detectives in plain view. The resident and owner of the vehicle which was parked in the driveway were asked for Consent to Search of their vehicle and premises. Both parties agreed and allowed Investigators to look thru the house and interior of the vehicle. At that time, multiple items were seized that had been reported stolen from other cities throughout the State of Arkansas. Items ranged from laptop computers, cellphones, charges, expensive backpacks, brief cases full of business paperwork and work related presentations, credit cards, ID cards and other electronic accessories. The owner of the vehicle, Larry Johnson Jr, age 43 from Lake Village, AR, was placed under arrest on an outstanding warrant and for felony theft by receiving over $1000. The items he had placed in the adjoining store room and inside the house were all itemized and seized for inventory. It was determined that Johnson, accompanied by several other individuals were traveling the State of Arkansas at night going from Fort Smith to Conway, Little Rock, Brinkley, Forrest City, Jonesboro, Memphis, Arkadelphia and Texarkana and possibly anywhere else along major thorough fairs were targeted; most being major Hotel Chains. If any other Law Enforcement Agencies have had Breaking & Entering/Theft Cases and have victims from the last 3 to 4 months of these kinds of thefts please contact Stuttgart Criminal Investigation Division (870)673-2967. If anyone has any information on this crime please call the PD. (870) 673-1414 or contact us via Facebook ( or come by the P.D. to share your information with us in person. Thank You, Det. Lt. Mark Duke
