Detention Officer Arrested

Robert Ellis

Late Sunday afternoon, Faulkner County Sheriff Investigators arrested 21-year old Faulkner County Detention Officer, Robert Ellis and 60-year old bail bondsman, Margaret Cockrell of Ben’s Bail Bonds, at the Faulkner County Detention Center Unit 2.

Investigators were tipped that Ellis was working with a detainee, 25 year old Glenn Toney, who had been booked and held at the Faulkner County Detention Center since 4/20/17 on a variety of charges. Toney was being held on a $100,000 bond as well as a charge with no bond.  Investigators had probable cause to believe Toney offered money to Ellis to manipulate booking paperwork to remove the no bond hold.  After the no bond was removed by Ellis, Toney was bonded out by Cockrell, who allegedly conspired with Toney and Ellis.   MORE
