On June 22, 2020, the Randolph County Sheriff's Office received two reports of thefts in the county. The first theft was a 1992 Geo Tracker SUV stolen from the Country Club Road area.
The second theft was a 2016 Blazer Aluminum boat stolen from the Water Valley Machine Shop on Water Valley Road. Later that day the Geo Tracker was spotted by a Randolph County Deputy and a pursuit began. The pursuit ended when the suspect crashed the Tracker on Petit Road near Highway 166. A foot pursuit began and a Pocahontas Police Dept. K9 tracked the suspect several miles before losing the track. The stolen Tracker was recovered at that location.
