Three recent filings in the Stone County Circuit Court

Mountain View Police were called to the Dollar General in reference to a possible forgery. 

Martin James Sullivan, 23, of Sulphur Rock in Independence County is accused of purchasing a prepaid Visa Card using currency that contained seven $20 bills that were counterfeit. 

All of the bills contained the same serial number.

Sullivan is charged with felony forgery in the first degree and misdemeanor theft of property. Sullivan’s bond was set at $10,000.

The second case involved a Mountain View man accused of residential burglary and theft of property. 

Prosecutors say, in the court filing, that Denephew Brandon Glen Malone, 34, of Mountain View, entered a residence through a window, and stole over $1100 of property from a family that was in the process of moving. 

During the investigation, prosecutors say Malone tried to sell a freezer he had stolen from the residence on a social media site.

Malone told investigators he had permission to take the items he did.

The circuit court charges against Malone are felony residential burglary and felony theft of property. Malone’s bond was set at $10,000.

The third circuit court filing involved a man from Arizona, Dennis A. Telles, 64. 

Telles was involved in a one-vehicle accident Monday on Highway 5 North in Stone County.

His vehicle went off the roadway and struck a rock wall just past the Scenic overlook. 

Telles told officers a deer had run out in front of him. He later said it was a squirrel. He also said he was staying in Mountain Home and thought that was where he was.

Authorities found he was in possession of medical marijuana issued in Arizona and crystal methamphetamine. He was charged for possession of the two substances.

The methamphetamine possession is a felony and marijuana is a misdemeanor.

A person can possess medical marijuana in Arkansas, but it must be sold through an Arkansas outlet. Telles bond was set at $1,500.
