SCSO Dispatched to Hackett Residence in Criminal Mischief Case


On Sunday morning, March 7, a Sebastian County deputy was dispatched to a Hackett residence on Plum Street. After arriving on scene, the deputy met with homeowners, Dane and Betty Goodwin, and noted the writing on both vehicles.

Goodwin, a spokesman for the Facebook group “Make Hackett Great Again,” stated that he and his wife had been up until around 2 a.m. Sunday morning and were unaware of any activity.

It was later that morning when they discovered that someone had written “STOP OR ELSE” on both vehicles. “It is a threat…It is sad too because all we are trying to do is change the town for the better.”

Goodwin, who addressed the Hackett City Council on February 25 (see related story), felt it was a threat in retaliation for his speech.

“It just makes us more determined than ever to keep moving forward,” Goodwin stated. Adding that since this incident, five more residents have asked for yard signs advertising the Facebook group. “Whoever did this wants to Make Hackett Great Again stop, but we will not be detoured in our efforts and will continue attending the council meetings to let our voices be heard.

SCSO Captain Philip Pevehouse stated that criminal mischief is a misdemeanor.
