Sheriff Clinton L. Evans

Marion County Sheriff’s Office


Sheriff Evans announces the arrest of Leigh Goldsworth Blackmon of Yellville on charges of Theft (Class C Felony) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Class D Felony).


The arrest stems from a complaint reported to the Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, August 10, 2017 of a stolen vehicle from the parking lot of D&H Tire and Lube on state highway 235 in Yellville. A BOLO (Be On the Look Out) was broadcast describing the vehicle that was stolen. That afternoon on the same day, Deputies with the Sheriff’s Office observed the vehicle travelling north bound on state highway 14 towards Yellville. The vehicle was confirmed as the one that was reported stolen. A traffic stop was initiated and the driver and passengers were taken into custody without incident. During a search of the vehicle, Deputies located syringes believed to be used to ingest methamphetamine. Investigator’s with the Sheriff’s Office interviewed Blackmon and he admitted to stealing the truck. The other occupants were questioned and later released without charges after determining they were not involved in the theft. Blackmon is charged with Theft (Class C Felony) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Class D Felony) and is currently incarcerated in the Marion County Jail in lieu of $25,000.00 bond awaiting his initial court appearance in the Marion County Circuit Court.
