On Wednesday, June 19, 2013, at 12:00pm, officers responded to a business in the 2300 block of Arkansas Blvd, in reference to a 911 call of suspicious letters. Upon arrival officers located an employee who advised they received several letters in the mail today of a threatening nature. All of the letters had a return address of the Telford Prison Unit in New Boston, Texas. The letters were recovered and are being processed by Texarkana Arkansas Crime Scene for any evidence they may contain.
Anyone with information is strongly urged to contact the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department at 903-798-3154 or Texarkana area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
