Sex Offender Arrested On Weapons Charge, Game and Fish Violations

A registered sex offender has been arrested by the Sheriff's Office and Probation and Parole agents after a home visit on Friday, November 21.

Jerry Bohannon, age 55, was arrested at the scene for Possession of a Firearm By Certain Persons and was cited for several game violations.

When officers arrived at his residence near the Hunt community on Private Road 3151 they discovered 1 antlered deer head and 1 full carcass of an antlered deer hanging in a shed behind the residence.

Officers noticed a rifle in an unsecured gun cabinet in the suspect's room.  Officers wrote a search warrant for the residence and recovered several items.

Officers recovered a 30-06 hunting rifle and .12 gauge ammunition from the residence and a 30-30 lever action hunting rifle and .22 ammunition in the suspect's vehicle.

An Arkansas Game and Fish officer was called to the scene and issued Bohannon several citations for suspected game violations.

Bohannon will appear for a bond hearing on Monday on the charges.
