Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence reported that counterfeit bills have shown up at various businesses in Izard County. Three fake $100 bills have surfaced in Horseshoe Bend and one has surfaced in Calico Rock. All the 100s have the same serial number of AB13990778M. A fake $10 and a fake $20 bill has also surfaced in Horseshoe Bend.
Lawrence said the back and front of the bills have separated to some degree. It appears the front and back of the bills were glued together and the glue is not holding.


Additional sex related charges have been filed against Robert J. Norton of Sage, who was previously charged in June of this year and is being held at the Fulton County Jail in Salem, on a $240,000 bond. According to Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence, the latest charges against Norton, filed October 1, 2014, involve conduct with three female students in his fourth grade class, which he taught last school year at Izard County Consolidated Elementary in Violet Hill. Norton’s bond has been increased by $100,000 for a total bond of $340,000. See Pacesetting Times for full story and recap of previous charges.
