Fulton trio faces more charges

Thursday, September 22, 2005

Two Fulton County men and a woman who were involved in a drug bust two weeks ago have been charged with additional felony counts in connection with a burglary at the old Saddle Store.

Rex A. Foster, 37, John Stewart, 47, and Cheryl Campbell, 38, have each been charged with commercial burglary, a class C felony; and theft of property, a class B felony.

According to the Arkansas State Police, items taken from the store were discovered Sept. 2 inside a cabin at the South Fork Resort.

Chief deputy Paul Martin with the Fulton County Sheriff's Department said Foster, Stewart and Campbell were staying in the cabin.

Campbell tried to conceal items taken from the store while officers where talking to Foster and Stewart, said special agent Andy Simpson of the Arkansas State Police.

In addition to the stolen items, which are valued at approximately $5,000, investigators found quantities of methamphetamine and a handgun, Martin said.

Both Stewart and Foster have been charged with multiple drug offenses.

Campbell and Stewart have also each been charged with residential burglary, a class B felony, and theft of property, a class C felony in connection with a burglary at a Fulton County man's home in July.

A semiautomatic pistol, car titles and property deeds were taken from the house, Simpson said.

While investigating the residential burglary, investigators found a box containing items that belonged to Campbell and Stewart, according to the arrest affidavit.

Foster and Stewart each posted a $100,000 bond. Campbell had not been arrested as of press time.

Campbell, Foster and Stewart are slated to make their first appearance in Fulton County Circuit Court Sept. 26.
