Arrests 4 SMALLLLLLLLLLCitizen calls led to the arrest of four suspects allegedly attempting to burglarize a vacant house. At approximately 2:09 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, officers responded to 504 E. Sevier Street after receiving calls of suspects attempting to break into the home.

Upon arrival, officers noticed two people, later identified as 30-year-old Harold Dewayne Johnson of Benton and 28-year-old Sarah E. Miller of Benton, going in and out of the home carrying items. During a search officers also located 33-year-old Louis Frank Miller of Benton and 53-year-old Raymond Lester Wooten inside the home.
