Pine Bluff police are are asking for help in locating two people wanted on multiple charges stemming from an incident April 5.
Lt. David Price said Kameron Markel White, 19, and Keenon R. Jackson, 19, should be considered armed and dangerous and are being sought for theft of property, forgery and aggravated assault, and the public is advised not to try and apprehend the two but contact law enforcement.
The incident started when the owner of a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe reported that the vehicle had been stolen at about 5 a.m. April 5 while it was parked at the Circle-In gas station at 2901 W. 28th Ave. The driver of the vehicle told police he left the engine running while he went inside and a cousin was outside in another vehicle at the time. When he came outside, his vehicle was gone and the cousin said a male had stolen the vehicle after getting out of a blue or gray Dodge Neon driven by another male.
The driver said he and his cousin went looking for the Tahoe and found it backed into the driveway of a house in the area of either East 12th Avenue and Ohio Street or East 12th Avenue and Pennsylvania Street, but when they got closer, the same blue or grey Dodge Neon cut them off and the Tahoe was able to flee, followed by the Dodge.
The driver later located the Tahoe parked in the area of East 6th Avenue and Barrow Drive and the owner of the vehicle verified that the vehicle belonged to her.
While police were looking at store surveillance video from the Circle-In, they reported seeing a male get out of a Chevrolet Equinox that matched the description of a vehicle found abandoned, wrecked and with a bullet hole in it in the 1100 block of East 12th Avenue earlier.
Detectives learned that the Equinox had been reported stolen in Little Rock on April 3 and while checking it, found a license plate that returned to a car registered to a Pine Bluff woman, as well as a box with six .38-caliber bullets in it, clothing items, CD’s and other items the owners of the vehicle said did not belong to them.
Officers went to the address the license plate returned to and talked to the owner of the vehicle, who said the last time she saw the license plate it was on the car.
Several shell casings were found in the area where the Equinox was wrecked.
According to a press release from Price, White is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes. Jackson is 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to contact the Detective Division at 730-2090 or the dispatch center at 541-5300.
