Drew County Deputies were dispatched to a residence in Wilmar, Tuesday night, in reference to a local man being stabbed.
A Monticello man, recently convicted for the first degree murder of a young Warren woman, has agreed to a plea bargain of 15 years on the charge of gun possession at the time of the murder investigation.
Last Friday at approximately 5:40 PM Sheriff Mark Gober was traveling down Highway 172 when he observed a white Chevrolet Dually pickup parked partially in the northbound lane with the rear of the vehicle in the grass and the front of the vehicle touching the center line of the highway. As Sheriff Gober approached the vehicle it began traveling northbound.

At 2 am, , on a recent Saturday morning, the Drew County Sheriff’s Office, Monticello Police Department and SEEMS were dispatched to Barkada Rd. in reference to an ATV accident.
On Monday, July 28, the Drew County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by the Woodruff County Sheriff about a stolen ATV case. Woodruff County had a suspect in custody (who was driving a car registered in Drew County), and felt he was responsible for other thefts, as well.
A Monticello city council member was arrested, around 9 PM Sunday night, after he argued with law-enforcement officers, after being called by a friend/constituent to speak on his behalf.
A decision has been reached in dealing with the Monticello High School students involved in Wednesday night’s student pranks, which bordered on vandalism.
The man Drew County Sheriff’s Deputies were searching for, over the past week, is now assisting them in locating a large portions of the stolen property from his long and wide crime spree, that now has touched three counties.
A 31-year-old Monticello man, while visiting a friend or relative in Drew Memorial, allegedly took the opportunity to vandalize at least 20 restrooms in the hospital, taking several unusual items from the “facilities.”
The suspect in this case also made the news a few months ago for the early-morning theft of a forklift.
Wednesday morning around 11:15, 911 calls begin coming into Monticello dispatch reporting a loaded chip truck driving erratically on HWY 425 S., repeatedly crossing into the oncoming lane of traffic and for shoulder, even in curves and on hills.
In an unusual follow-up to the story below, about the burglary of cars on a local church’s parking lot last Sunday night, apparently the theives felt remorse when they opened their collection, finding a study Bible of one of the victims.
A Monticello man was stabbed multiple times, and assaulted with many different household “weapons” Friday night (including a beer can, a boot, and a space heater,) after he tried to separate the suspect and the girlfriend that he as allegedly fighting with.
Recent Monticello Police Department reports include 2 residential burglaries, since New Year’s Eve.
Numerous Drew County Deputies responded to the false 911 call, reporting a man with a shotgun at the River Bar & Restaurant.
The Monticello Police Department, along with Walmart, Revival Center, and DHS, sponsored 53 children, this year for “shop with a cop”. Special thanks to pastor Michael Jones, JoAnn Trotter, Walmart staff and all the officers who participated.
This was a very rewarding experience for all involved, both children and adults.
September 11, 2001 our great country was attacked by those who hate the freedom and democracy we all stand for. Many innocent individuals lost their lives during this tragic event. However, there were also fire and police servicemen who lost their lives by choosing to put themselves in harm way to save and protect as many of the innocent as possible.
Although the attack was in New York City, it affected every American across the nation. It caused us to realize how little we can take for granted. We believe that if the event had taken place in Monticello, Arkansas our brave fire and police servicemen would have responded the same.
Revival Center will host the 2nd Annual Servicemen Appreciation day to honor the sacrifice of our local and county law enforcement and firefighters, who place their lives in harm way every time they put on their uniforms. This is just a small gesture to let them know we will not take their sacrifice for granted. We also wanted to thank their families for allowing them to serve. No servicemen serve alone but their families serve with them.
On December 2, 2013, a 20 year old Warren resident came to the Drew County Sheriff’s Office, spoke to Sheriff Mark Gober and reported that the night before at a location on the Old Warren Rd. he had been shot at multiple times.
Around noon Saturday, a Drew County man, estimated to be in his 20s, was seriously injured when a hunting rifle discharged as he was getting it out of his truck.
A Michigan man has been charged with illegally killing a deer on property owned by the University of Arkansas at Monticello. Gregory Shaw,40, of Taylor, Mich., was seen hunting on the Old Prisoner of War Camp owned by UAM. (more…)
