Listen to the 911 call that led to an arrest in the disappearance of Beverly Carter — UPDATED

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 2:39 PM


The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and Little Rock Police Department have released audio from the 911 call this morning that led to the arrest of Arron M. Lewis, 33, on a bench warrant for kidnapping related to the disappearance of North Little Rock real estate agent Beverly Carter. Carter vanished last Thursday evening after going to show a home in Scott. Police are not saying yet why they believe Lewis is connected to her disappearance.

Lewis was arrested after he was spotted at a bus stop near Green Mountain Dr. and Rainwood Road by a witness who called the police. Police said that after Lewis was approached by witnesses after emerging from a Subway restaurant, he fled on foot toward the Pleasant Pointe Apartments at 1602 Green Mountain. Police say he ran into the manager's office of the complex and then jumped out a window as officers closed in. An officer took him into custody without further incident as he tried to flee around the building. He is currently being questioned by investigators with the Sheriff's Office. 

NOTE: PCSO has confirmed the spelling of Lewis' first name as "Arron," not "Aaron," as previous accounts have stated. 

UPDATE: Investigators have apparently seized a large dump truck that was parked at a convenience store near Pleasant Pointe Apartments, cordoning it off with tape for a good part of the afternoon before loading it onto a flat bed truck and hauling it away less than an hour ago.

Arron Lewis has worked as a driver of heavy duty construction trucks like the dump truck that was seized. On his Facebook page on July 19, Lewis had posted: "Got a new job this last week working for Argos....a cement company. Back to driving trucks on Monday and a much better pay check. Life is getting better. Got to stay positive and hope everything stays that way."

We've got a call in to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department to ask about the truck.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
