Arkansas Inmate on Crime Spree Steals Cop's Gun, Shoots His Dog

An inmate who escaped from custody three days ago is on a crime spree in Pocahontas, Ark., where police say he stole an officer's gun, threatened the cop's wife and shot his dog.

James Lundry, 39, who was being held on felony charges of improperly using food stamps, escaped from a work detail with other inmates during a lunch break of Friday, stealing a vehicle and heading to Pocahontas, according to Police Chief Cecil Tackett.

Since Friday, police and civilians have had multiple run-ins with Lundry, who has previously been arrested multiple times in Pocahontas on misdemeanor charges. Lundry is now considered armed and very dangerous, Tackett said.

On Sunday, a caretaker of an abandoned house in the town found Lundry squatting inside, and told police it seemed he had been there for a couple of days. Police used scent-tracking dogs to follow Lundry's path from a back window to a parked vehicle. Police believe he entered the vehicle and left, leaving behind stolen items.

Around 11 p.m. Sunday night, Lundry entered the home of a police officer who was on duty elsewhere in the town, and took a .40 caliber Glock pistol, ammunition, and a tactical ballistics vest, Tackett said. He then confronted the officer's wife at the house, and brandished the gun at her before firing three rounds into and killing the couple's pet Pit Bull.

I rather agree on this one. Police shoot people’s dogs and shrug it off as if it was nothing. Should work both ways.

Your comment is sick. You sound like an occupier who’d be happy to have felons running around stealing weapons and shooting cops’ dogs because a very relative few cops have rightfully/wrongfully shot dogs.

Guess what, with the current FR setup a lookup of any nonexistent FReeper homepage comes up that way. So ~lundry comes up that way, as does ~abunchofrandomnonsense

Well, that’s different that the blue page with “This account has been banned or suspended” isn’t it?

held on felony charges of improperly using food stamps

Had to stop right here. What was he doing with the food stamps? Selling them on the black market? Using them as rolling papers? Defacing them so they all had Obama's likeness on them? What, pray tell, gets you a felony food stamp rap?

Hard to say. Maybe the dog just fell in with bad company.

Not guilty. Just defending himself. He believed the dog was attacking him.

Sounds to me like he was a local pest that just moved up to the big leagues.

If he is smart he will find a lawyer and turn himself in.

I doubt they will take him alive otherwise.

He has rattled a hornet’s nest.

I thought you knew that chap... whatever.

It used to be you’d get no such freeper, rather than “banned or suspended,” when you tried to see the home page of a nonexistent (hashed) freeper name.

What do you call "nobody by that name" on a white page?
That sure isn't “banned or suspended” on a blue page is it?

... whatever.

Truly!

OK, kitty peeper, there is a way to find out if a freeper name truly exists. And? The home page gag is a joke, son, a joke. Based on a current misfeature of FR.
