Tunica plays part in Oct. 11 raid in Arkansas
Paul Battle Arena & Exposition Center in Tunica served as the staging area for a massive raid by federal, state and local law enforcement in Helena-West Helena, AR Tuesday.
Eight hundred state and federal officers, including the FBI and Arkansas’ Eastern District U.S. Attorney’s office, arrested 51 people in a sweep that started at 4 a.m. on October 11. Last week, a federal grand jury handed down seven indictments of 70 people, including five law enforcement officers, for charges ranging from public corruption and drug trafficking to money laundering. Fourteen individuals remained at large at presstime.

Walk it Out
Board learns of ups, downs
Tunica’s board of aldermen had good news and bad news waiting for them when they met on Oct. 4.
The good news was that the Town of Tunica will likely receive $438,000 in community development block grant funds.
Jeff Walters of the North Delta Planning and Development District said those funds were contingent on approval by various environmental agencies. Walters said that process generally takes four months and was underway.
“The Corps (of Engineers) is the only one left to get back, and I hope they will move quickly,” Walters said.
The CDBG will help rehab the Clayton Henderson Meadows lift station, the Cottonland Village lift station and cover other sewer work, Town Clerk Celia Boren said.
