Press Release

On Thursday morning January 26, 2017, Montgomery County Sheriff Deputy Stacy Watson, the Caddo Hills school resource officer, made contact with a suspicious subject on campus. The subject left campus shortly after initial contact. Deputy Watson identified the subject as Jacob Anzaldua, 36 of Corpus Christi Texas. After looking into his background, Anzaldua was discovered to be wanted out of Texas and considered armed and dangerous. A plan to apprehend Anzaldua was put in place to affect the arrest off campus on Thursday afternoon. Anzaldua arrived back on campus and was spotted near the bus loading area. Sheriff White made the decision to go ahead and take him into custody on campus. At that time the school was notified and went into lockdown. Anzaldua was located behind the school in a parking lot by Sheriff White and deputies and was immediately taken into custody without incident. Sheriff White appreciates the Caddo Hills administration for their efforts in a safe resolution to the incident. He would also like to thank the Arkansas Game and Fish, U.S. Forest Service, and the 18th West Judicial Drug Task Force for their assistance. Anzaldua has no direct ties to the Caddo Hills School. Other than the warrant from Texas, no other charges are pending at this time.
