What's news this week in Crittenden County...

The annual spring quilt extravaganza drew hundreds to local displays last week

With fewer than six months to serve on a three-year felony sentence for third-degree burglary, 31-year-old Brandon Brasher of Grand Rivers saw an opportunity to run and took it. A work-release inmate at the Crittenden County Restricted Custody Center (RCC), Brasher bolted from custody Saturday afternoon and made his way on foot north of the jail on East Carlisle Street through Marion’s city streets until he eluded a deputy pursuing him in a vehicle and then on foot.
