CANEHILL, Ark. (KFSM) — Sheriff's deputies have arrested a Farmington man accused of trying to break into a home while the owner was asleep.
Leon Hornback, 41, was arrested Monday (April 1) in connection with residential burglary, first-degree criminal mischief, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms and driving on suspended license.

"Thanks to YOU, our awesome WCSO Facebook followers....who shared this post over 500 times....we received a tip that helped us identify the suspect in this case," the sheriff's office said in the post. "We really do appreciate your help!"
