Little Rock rolls into jail

Published 11:42pm Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley sounded as if he had just let out a sigh of relief.

In announcing a Sunday arrest, Riley said, “Selma’s most wanted fugitive, has been arrested.”

During an operation Sunday, Daniel Louis McReynolds, known as “Little Rock” or “Lil Rock,” had been arrested in Birmingham. The U.S. Marshals’ Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Taskforce conducted the arrest, with the “aide and support of the Selma Police department Crime Response Team and Drug Unit.”

Riley said McReynolds, long sought by local law enforcement, was wanted on a federal arrest warrant for possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

“He was arrested without incident after recognizing there was no way out,” Riley said late Tuesday evening.

McReynolds remains in federal custody and will be transported to Mobile where he will face charges in the federal court system.

But while the arrest of McReynolds is a relief to Riley, he knows there are more arrests that must be made.

“Right now we are continuing to investigate in an effort to identify anyone that gave aide or comfort to McReynolds while knowing he was a wanted fugitive,” Riley said. “Individuals found to have aided ‘Lil Rock’ will be prosecuted regardless of who they are.”

Riley also said there are investigations under way into those who may have been “involved and connected with any criminal acts associated with the suspect.”

    “aide or comfort” arrests should be pursuded. The attitude out there now is that “if he didn’t want to get shot, he shouldn’t have stood in front of my gun”. All the little thugs that run for a day or two while the police are looking for them are “sheltered” by people in the city that know dern good and well that the person is on the run. We NEVER hear that someone has been arrested for “Aiding and abbedding” in Selma. “Turn the tide” by holding their facilitators responsible. pops
