LONOKE, Ark.- Lonoke Mayor Thomas Privett has been arrested in a corruption probe and the Chief of Police, along with bail bondsmen, are charged with a conspiracy to make methamphetamine in order to frame someone with it.
Police Chief Jay Campbell and his wife, Kelly Harrison Campbell, are also accused of stealing antique jewelry from a home and pawning it. The chief's wife allegedly took at least two inmates out of the jail for sex at different locations.
She is charged with prisoner escape-related crimes. "This investigation is ongoing and the state has not ruled out that there may be additional charges filed and that there may be additional suspects," said Prosecutor Lona McCastlain.
