Shooting Arrests

It turns out they're both related to Sheriff's in two of the counties.

Nineteen year old Blake Siddens and 19 year old Nathan Raines- both of Albany- are in jail.

Each face a million dollars bond.

The two were arrested after a string of shootings, vandalism, and even thefts through Gentry, Dekab, Andrew, and Buchanan counties over the last week.

Dozens of cars, houses, and buildings have been shot.

Siddens is the grandson of current Gentry county sheriff Gene Lupfur … and raines is the second cousin of the Dekab county sheriff- Wes Raines.

Sheriff raines says the shootings were just part of the massive crime spree.

Both suspects have been charged with 3 felonies apiece but possible charges are also pending in Buchanan and Andrew counties.

No people are believed to have been hit during the shootings.
