On television and in the movies, officers walk up to the door of someone's home, dramatically present them with a search warrant and brush past them as they begin to look for whatever evidence they came to find. That one piece of paper holds a great deal of power in both Hollywood fiction and real life.

Woman suspected of multiple violent crimes in Arkansas

A woman already suspected of murdering her grandmother is in the hot seat again after being accused of intentionally running down a bicyclist with her car.

Three men have been indicted as part of an ongoing investigation into a suspected drug ring, according to federal and local sources.

This was made evident on a recent Friday when a particular person was suspected of drug crimes.
