A Highfi ll police officer was suspended and the police chief resigned over a Pea Ridge population sign worth about $100. The sign went missing about 2½ years ago. Officer Jeremy Wall was suspended after a Benton County Sheriff’s Offi ce investigation last month showed he went into another man’s garage and took a sign which he then had returned to Pea Ridge. The sign had been found by a teen years earlier and wasn’t stolen, according to the Sheriff ’s Office incident report. The men who had the sign say officers shouldn’t have taken it without a warrant or permission.
