SEBASTIAN COUNTY, Ark. — Deputies with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) are searching for a suspect they believe broke into a vehicle, stole items and forged checks.
According to the sheriff's office, on Aug. 11, 2020, deputies took a report from a woman who said she returned to her vehicle parked at the Choctaw Casino to find that someone had stolen her purse from her vehicle.
