The small Cross County town of Wynne is buzzing this weekend with the news that Cross County Bank president David Dowd was one of five men scooped up by police in Rogers last week as cops cracked down on an online prostitution ring there. Dowd — seen here accepting a "Business of the Year" award from the local Chamber of Commerce on behalf of Cross County Bank in 2007 — is a prominent figure in Cross County who is also apparently a deacon at Wynne Baptist Church. He was charged with patronizing a prostitute, a class B misdemeanor. Police also arrested eight women and charged them with misdemeanor counts of prostitution, and arrested one women for misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance. Here's a slideshow of mugshots of those who were arrested.
