A Benton man was arrested Thursday in connection with a string of thefts at local motels.
A motel clerk reportedly told police that the suspect, 26-year-old Brian Byrum, was still at the scene when the Benton Police Department arrived.
Details of the incident will be in Saturday's issue of The Saline Courier.
The fifth annual Bryant Mayor's Easter Egg Hunt is still set for 11 a.m. Saturday at Alcoa 40 Park, 1110 Shobe Road, but the parks department will be watching the weather and will determine that morning whether to reschedule the event.
If the hunt is rained out, the celebration will be held next Saturday, April 6, and will be relocated to Mills Park.
Sponsored by Bryant Parks and Recreation Department, the event will feature an Easter egg hunt, face painting, bouncy houses, games, prizes and an appearance from the Easter Bunny.
All activities are free to the public.
The first wall of the Benton event center was lifted into place Tuesday morning. Weighing 80,000 lbs., the wall was hoisted by crane and secured by workers from project construction team CDI of Little Rock.
