SHERIFF'S OFFICE SEEK PUBLIC HELP IDENTIFYING SUSPECT: Jefferson County, Arkansas – December 12, 2016 – Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigators are seeking the public's help identifying the suspect captured on a convenience store video surveillance camera.
Surveillance video on Sunday, December 11, 2016 recorded an unidentified white male entering the Handy Mart Convenience Store located at 6605 US-79 in Pine Bluff, AR., where he became confrontational with the clerk who refused to accept the return of a container of milk that the suspect alleged he purchased and wanted to return due to his belief that the product was dated.
The suspect purchased two additional containers of milk, while continuing to argue with the store clerk. The suspect allegedly threatened the clerk and departed the store in what an eyewitness identified as a tan colored Chevrolet Suburban or Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). While departing the store, a witness reported that the suspect stopped his SUV behind her vehicle and fired a series of shots at the convenience store.
The suspect is believed to be a white male, approximately 5’10”; thin build, medium-length dark hair. He was last seen wearing a dark colored baseball cap, blue/red Superman logoed shirt with a blue hooded jacket, khaki pants and dark colored medium-high boots.
