Sgt. Cassandra Davis of Little Rock Police Department announces:

On October 16th around 10:00 p.m. after receiving a tip, officers conducted a traffic stop near 24th and Adams where they took Larry Ishmon, Black Male, 2/27/91 of Little Rock, into custody. Mr. Ishmon was suspected in the robbery shooting of the EZ Mart Store clerk at 11724 Rainwood on the morning of October 16th. Mr. Ishmon was transported to the detective division and later charged with Aggravated Robbery, Battery 1st and Criminal Attempt to Commit Capital Murder.

CRAIGLIST SUSPECT: James Hinton

Sgt. Davis also said the police have arrested James Hinton, 18, in a string of so-called Craigslist thefts. The crook would meet people with items to sell on Craigslist, grab the item and then run away.

He's a suspect in at least nine grab-and-gos, according to police, mostly at an apartment complex at 9400 Stagecoach Road, dating back to August. The thief stole diamond or other types of rings on five occasions, two iPads, two iPhones and a Macbook. The police said they are investigating other thefts.
