Police Catch Group of Alleged Vandals in Texarkana
Four adults and two juveniles were arrested early Tuesday morning after allegedly driving around with pellet guns, knives, prescription drugs and causing havoc in a Texarkana neighborhood.
On Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 1AM, Texarkana, Ark., Police responded to Sugar Ridge Lane in reference to multiple calls of a suspicious vehicle traveling around the neighborhood. One of the victims advised that a front glass door had been shot out by a possible air soft or BB gun. Both victims described the suspect vehicle as a grey mini-van.
Sgt. Sam McJunkins was in the area searching when a grey mini-van matching the suspect vehicle passed him at a high rate of speed. Sgt. McJunkins turned his vehicle around and was able to catch up to the suspect vehicle on Lakeridge Drive. Inside the vehicle were six individuals -- Alexander Frey, 18, of Texarkana, Texas; Jordan Labrie, 20, of Texarkana, Texas; Kade Mansfield, 18, of Ashdown, Ark., Madalyn McDonald, 21, of Texarkana, Texas, and two 14 year old juveniles of Nash and Texarkana, Texas.
The Texarkana, Texas Police Department arrived and continued the investigation, which led to the recovery of three rifle style pellets guns, two swords, a large knife, and various prescription medications. Most of the property recovered is suspected to be stolen from a residence in Bowie County.
Delta Squad Officers were quick to respond to the area where several individuals were traveling around with weapons, vandalizing property. Even though three of the weapons were pellet guns, this placed our officers in a very dangerous situation. Thankfully only property damage was caused during this incident and no one was seriously injured.
