It took about 10 minutes for two men to take 38 iPhones and a smart-phone notebook at the Bryant Walmart store early Tuesday, authorities said.
Walmart officials reportedly told officers from the Bryant Police Department that the amount of items taken is worth $26,832. Sgt. Todd Crowson said they do not know how the suspects were able to walk past the front doors without setting off any alarms.
A complaint Monday about a neighbor's dog escalated to a heated confrontation between Benton resident Donald Power and Mayor David Mattingly.
The incident occurred late afternoon on Pope Street, where Power resides. In the center of it all is the future of three dogs.
Power contends that three dogs belonging to his neighbor, Russ Rogers, are creating a nuisance by barking and says one dog in particular is "vicious" and charges at him.
"This is between the residents of Bauxite and Mayor McMahan, not between him and me," says Debbi Purifoy, who is leading an effort to recall McMahan.
Purifoy has gathered approximately 130 signatures from residents in Bauxite (population 438) who apparently agree with her when she says, "We need to save this town before it's too late."
