Overdoses Investigation Lead to Multiple Arrests

Beginning the week of August 17th, the Pulaski County area experienced over one dozen heroin overdoses within a 10 day period, in which it is suspect that three deaths in Richland and Waynesville were caused by heroin.

A multi-agency initiative was implemented to identify the sources from which this deadly heroin was coming from, and terminate their operations. A small, strike-team quickly located possible suspects throughout the County, and began executing Search and Arrests warrants. Resulting from this investigation, numerous individuals from Pulaski County and the Chicago, IL. area were arrested. In addition, a substantial amount of heroin was seized during the course of this endeavor.

Arrested during this operation were the following individuals:

Jessica Hunter (33) – Distributing a Controlled Substance, $1,000,000 Bond.

Michael Beauchamp (30) – Distributing a Controlled Substance, $500,000 Bond.

Derrick Crenshaw (35) – Distributing a Controlled Substance Near a School,
 $500,000 Bond.

Rachael Yracheta (30) – Warrants for Theft ($5,000 Bond), Forgery ($10,000 Bond) and Possession of a Controlled Substance (No Bond).

Amanda Hayes (37) – Distributing a Controlled Substance, $250,000 Bond.

Latisha Cocroft (33) – Distributing a Controlled Substance, No Bond.

Additional charges and arrests may be forthcoming from these cases. Officers and deputies from numerous Pulaski County law enforcement agencies participated in this investigation, and received assistance from the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
