All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police Officer First Class Lewis reports that officers were dispatched to Oaklawn Casino on Central Avenue October 15, 2021, around 7AM, to investigate a man and woman that were seen on video surveillance monitors using a torch to smoke something from a glass pipe inside a white Chrysler in the parking lot.

Officers arrived and found the Chrysler.  They made contact with the occupants:  the woman, Laura E. Wolf, 49, of Highway 70 East in Glenwood, was in the front passenger seat and the man, Jason Charles Wolf, 49, of Highway 70 East in Glenwood, was in the driver seat.  A security guard told police that as officers approached the suspects, the male attempted to hide the drugs and pipe.

Jason Charles Wolf, 49, of Highway 70 East in Glenwood – Allegedly smoking dope in the casino parking lot at 7AM.
