All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
Hot Springs Police took a report of a robbery back in November.
The victim alleges that an unknown black male got in her car, pointed a gun at her and demanded money as she stopped for the stop sign at the intersection of Garland Avenue at Linwood Street. She says that she was ordered to drive to an unknown location where the suspect attempted to rob her.
She told the suspect that her money was at her apartment on Orange Street. They drove to the apartment and went inside. The suspect allegedly took a backpack valued at $25, a computer valued at $200, jewelry valued at $50, her cell phone valued at $50 and $500 cash before fleeing the area. She said that she heard him say something that made her think that his name might be “Cookie”.
The next week, the victim went to the HSPD HQ and met with Detective Fallis. She advised him that she and a friend located “Cookie” online through social media. Det. Fallis was able to take the picture from the internet that she provided of the suspect and made positive ID on the suspect.
