***************** Scam Alert****************** It has been brought to our attention that there is a scam occurring using our phone number. The scam is calling individuals and telling them to call our phone number. We do not call individuals using automated messages asking them to call us. If we need to speak to someone we will call them directly.

Although Detective William Holmes has not officially left the sheriff’s office, I would like to say that I appreciate his commitment to our department and our profession through the years. He has represented us honorably and I’m sure he will continue to do that in the future. Although we are saddened that he is leaving, we are proud of him and wish him the best of luck in the future. Thank you for your service William. You will be missed. Sheriff Kevin Molder

****************UPDATE**************** Heard Was Captured Today, 7/5/18, in Jonesboro. We are requesting help locating Joseph Sheldon Heard. Heard is a Level 3 Sex Offender and had registered with us living at a house on Maple Grove Lane in Trumann, AR. During a compliance check by one of our investigators, it was discovered that Heard had not lived at his registered residence for over six months. State Law requires a sex offender “shall report in person every six (6) months after registration to the local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction to verify registration.” We currently have a Felony Warrant for Failure to Register – Sex Offender on Joseph Heard. If anyone has knowledge of his whereabouts, please contact the Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office at (870) 578-2116. Thank you, Sheriff Kevin Molder


I came across this photo on Facebook and immediately thought about our county. We have the best Fire Departments. They are always willing to give us a helping hand when needed and we do the same. Thank you for all you do. Sheriff Kevin Molder





When I took office on January 1, 2017, one of my commitments to the citizens of Poinsett County was fighting drugs. In 2018, I started a task force to specifically target drug dealers. These are the people who sell to our kids and addicts. They are the ones who trade property that has been stolen from our hard working citizens. Sharing information on what we are doing is one way I have informed the community. However, this can have an adverse effect on how people view our county and may make people think it is no longer safe. This is a problem that not only exists here, but throughout the U.S. What you are seeing now is an aggressive no tolerance approach for drug dealers that is producing results. I do believe this approach will drive the crime rate down in Poinsett County since most crimes are directly related to drug abuse. Thus, making Poinsett County a safer place to live. We continue to ask for your support in this difficult task. We also ask that you send us tips anytime you see something that is strange or unusual. You can go to www.poinsettcountysheriff.org and submit crime tips anonymously. We can do great things together. Sincerely, Sheriff Kevin Molder
