On the above date, Street Crimes Unit Officers received information from Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office in Arkansas that a person wanted on a parole violation warrant for involvement in a drive by shooting was staying in our city. The suspect was described as possibly armed and dangerous and was identified as Clarence Cortez Hamilton. Officers responded to 2039-B Bridgewater Circle to locate Hamilton and after a short investigation, Hamilton was located and arrested.

Hamilton was arrested on the following warrants through Arkansas; parole violation for possession of controlled substance and terroristic act, breaking and entering, theft, and probation violation for possession of a firearm. A photo of Hamilton is below

The fact a person has been arrested or charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.
