Tip leads to arrest of wanted Ark. fugitive, second fugitive also arrested

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Warrants/Fugitive Division received an anonymous tip less than five hours after posting a wanted bulletin that lead deputies to the whereabouts of 28-year-old Darius Bryant.

Bryant was wanted by JCSO for an active “Order to Incarcerate” for failure to appear for trial, stemming from a 2014 case that left one man dead and two others injured after a verbal altercation turned physical.

Bryant was spotted Monday evening and was arrested without incident at a poultry plant in Jefferson County.

He was also arrested for active warrants out of Arkansas County for failure to appear with a bond amount of $1,225 and Clarendon for failure to appear for a speeding infraction, drinking in public, obstructing of governmental operations and driving on suspended driver’s license with a bond amount of $1,595. Bryant was taken to the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center where he will remain until his next court appearance.

While at the poultry plant, deputies also arrested another fugitive, Charles Terry Alsup II, 24.  Alsup was spotted by deputies at the same poultry plant where Bryant was seen. He was originally being sought by deputies during the agencies 4th of July Warrant Roundup dubbed “Operation Fireworks.” However, Alsup managed to evade capture by authorities for an active Felony “Petition to Revoke” on a charge Alsup had previously bonded on. Alsup was taken to the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center, where he was held in lieu of a $1,316.75 bond.
