On November 02, 2011 the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office arrested James Robert Rouse (07/17/90) of Walnut Ridge for Revocation of Probation. The arrest stems from Rouse being placed on probation for 48 months for theft of property back on July 30, 2010. Rouse was ordered to pay restitution as part of his probation. Restitution was not paid, Rouse stopped going to see his probation officer or pay his other fines. A warrant was issued for Rouse and officers started looking for Rouse. The Sheriff’s Office received several tips of Rouse’s location. Lawrence County Deputies and Walnut Ridge Officers went to the residence Rouse was reported to be staying at and arrested him without incident in Walnut Ridge. Rouse was transported to the Lawrence County Jail. Rouse’s bond was set at $10,000 and a Circuit Court date of November 16 was given.
