All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.


The shirtless man with the tattoos and the cigarette is convicted felon Andrew Edwards. He was supposed to be locked up in the Garland County Jail awaiting a return trip to the Department of Correction. But he wasn’t.

He was somewhere out in the community. So ACC’s Special Response Team officers made it their business to find him in a hurry. They arrested him today at a residence on Highway 9 in Leola, which is ESE of Malvern.

Edwards’ convictions include domestic battery, firearm possession and robbery. He’s behind bars tonight…and he will be making that trip back to state prison.
