Jacksonville PD breaking policy for cancer awareness

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - The Jacksonville Police Department is bending some of the rules in November to raise awareness for cancer. 

Some of the officers with the department will be taking part in "No Shave November." For the entire month of November, Chief Boyd is allowing participating Jacksonville officers to let their facial hair grow.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 28, 2015) – At midnight on Saturday, Oct. 31, registration fees for all 2016 Little Rock Marathon events will increase, and athletes planning to participate may want to register soon rather than later.

Police: Driver dies after speeding through Baseline Road intersection

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- An accident on Baseline Road in Little Rock left a driver dead.

According to the Little Rock Police Department, 34-year-old Tremell Mahan, of Little Rock died Monday during a single-car crash at the intersection of Baseline Road and Stanton Road.

A police report shows that witnesses told police Mahan was traveling south on Staton Road at a high speed and crossed through the intersection before hitting a utility pole and fence.

One of the witnesses apparently said he believed Mahan was racing with another green vehicle, but police said surveillance video did not show another vehicle being involved in anyway.

Developers eye east Little Rock for growth

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A long-time industrial section of Little Rock is set to get a makeover, courtesy of the same people who transformed the River Market district downtown.

The developers, Moses Tucker and Cromwell, want to transform an empty warehouse in east Little Rock, hoping it spurs more growth.

Since the Clinton Library opened in 2004, the east side of town has seen slow but steady growth. It now boasts a distillery, brewery, and Heifer International.

"I think [this development] could be incredible," said Moses Tucker President Chris Moses.

"[This area] has got a lot of grit to it," added Cromwell director of finance and business development Dan Fowler. "Those anchors really set the tone for what could be."

Kanis Road plans to expand to multiple lanes

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- One of the busiest routes in west Little Rock is expanding.

Big changes are coming to Kanis Road in less than a month.

"It's not any particular time of the day. It's all hours of the day," said Deedee Sebren, a manager of a physical therapy clinic on the corner of Kanis Road and Bowman Road.

Congestion, back-ups, accidents are all what some sign up for when they drive on Kanis Road.

"There's more accidents than none. I mean we've seen quite a few. One of our employees has been involved in one too," said Sebren. "They have actually rerouted traffic through our parking lot because of accidents."

Sebren says she sees about six accidents a year on Kanis Road from their clinic.

"We don't always see accidents everyday, [but] there's always sirens every day," said Sebren.

LRPD searching for dangerous robbery suspects

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Little Rock Police Department is investigating a string of armed robberies that have taken place in different areas of Little Rock throughout the month of October.

Just after midnight on October 23, the Sonic on Westhaven Drive was robbed at gunpoint.

"It makes us all uneasy," Brenda Malmquist says.

Two of the three suspects involved in the robbery entered the businesses holding semi-automatic handguns demanding money. Police say the one wearing red razorback shorts reportedly made all the threats and demands. Police have reason to believe this is not the first time this team of thieves has left their mark. Malmquist explains, "I think times are just more desperate. People have become more desperate and more daring. That's unfortunate."
