All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police K-9 Officer J. Smith reports that he was on patrol in the area of the Central Ave./Hobson Ave. Intersection this morning around 1AM, when he spotted a 2001 Dodge Caravan cruising around the city streets with the wrong license plate.  He turned on the blue lights and conducted a traffic stop on that minivan at the Sands Motel.

Off. Smith made contact with the driver who advised that her name was Anna Hubbard, born 12/11/92…..with no ID card to prove it.  She was asked to provide the last 4 numbers of her Social Security Number.  After avoiding the question for a few minutes, she came up with “I can’t remember it”.

When the officer quizzed her more about why she was having trouble with simple identity questions, the truth came out.  Caitline Ann Hubbard, 28, of Whittington Avenue in Hot Springs, had her pertinents checked through the police computer.  The check revealed that she was wanted by the court for Failure To Comply.
