Chaffee Security Trio ID'd In Poaching Case
November 16, 2010
Three officers with the Department of Public Safety at Fort Chaffee who
were cited for poaching have been identified.
Justin Oliver, Jerami Hodges and Jeffrey Cox recently resigned amid an
investigation into suspected poaching of deer on Fort Chaffee land,
according to Keith Stephens, spokesman for the Arkansas Game & Fish
The three, who have been employed at Fort Chaffee ranging from 11?2 to
seven years, are suspected of hunting a 12-point buck and two 10-point
bucks, Stephens said. Two of the men were cited for night hunting and the
other for hunting out of season, he said.
Authorities received information from members of the public regarding
night hunting and hunting out of season for deer, Stephens said.
"They (the trio) confessed to several violations," Stephens said to the
Times Record last week.
Capt. Chris Heathscott, state public affairs officer with the Arkansas
National Guard., told the Times Record last week that the Guard is following
up with implementing some internal measures "to improve our operations on
post so this doesn't occur on Fort Chaffee in the future.".
