2 face charges following Oct. 13 shooting | News
The Conway Police Department arrested two men in connection with a shooting on Keathley Drive on October 13th.
Frederick Lamont Giles, 20, and Tiyun Deshaun Sims, 19, are currently behind bars in Faulkner County Detention Center awaiting charges for alleged involvement in the early morning shootings on Keathly Drive. Giles, currently on parole, faces contempt for the court, the possession of firearms by certain individuals, acts of terrorism and theft on charges. Sims, a probation officer, faces terrorist acts, receipt theft, and criminal charges following the incident.
Giles has been ordered to stay behind bars in lieu of a $ 100,000 bond, and Sims is being held without bond.
Authorities were called to an apartment on the 2000 block of Keathley Drive at 1:59 am on October 13 because a complaint about gunfire had been fired.
When officer Joey Zulpo was driving into the area in question, he spotted a black 2017 Nissan Altima driving in the opposite direction.
“Because of the vehicle coming from the direction of the reported shots and the short time between the call and the observation of the vehicle, Ofc. Zulpo let the license plate of the vehicle run and was informed that it was stolen, “said a search warrant affidavit.
The vehicle in question sped away. However, the report said the officer soon found it abandoned on the street. The stolen Altima was left near the intersection of Clifton and Fleming Streets. According to the report, the vehicle was still running and the passenger door was left open.
Authorities found Sims’ phone in the vehicle and also recognized an orange hoodie that had been left in the vehicle. Court documents show that Giles was wearing a “bright orange hoodie” on October 10th when police investigated a shooting in the Germantown Apartments.
At the time of the October 10 shooting, Giles and Sims appeared to be “the targets of the shooting,” authorities said.
After finding the phone and Giles’ hoodie, detectives went to Toineka Webb’s apartment in the Germantown Apartments. According to a search warrant affidavit, the two men fled Webb’s home on the night of the October 10 shooting.
When Webb was questioned by the police, the report initially stated that she was the only one in the house, but later admitted that Giles was her boyfriend and that he was hiding in it.
Despite admitting that Giles was inside, the 20-year-old woman refused to allow the officer to go in to arrest him.
Giles was finally arrested when he “came out of the bedroom”.
The local authorities also searched the house for evidence that could be linked to the shooting investigation. According to a warrant inventory sheet, local officials confiscated four iPhones, eight bags of marijuana food, a marijuana cockroach, and two empty magazines, a loaded magazine and a 9mm pistol. The silver and black SCCY CPX-2 pistol was found under a mattress.
Webb was also arrested after the authorities ransacked her home. Online records show she was in possession of drugs and firearms and a controlled substance at the same time after the incident. The 20-year-old woman issued a $ 35,000 bond at 12:32 p.m. on October 17.
Authorities are working to identify a suspect in the October 10 shooting, Woodruff said.
“Detectives are still trying to find a suspect in the Germantown Apartments they are shooting from [Oct. 10],” She said.
