Trumann, Ark. (KAIT) – A Trumann woman is scared after her neighbor harassed her with threats and pictures after she called the fire department during a campfire.
Nedra Cook had lived in Trumann for 11 years and had never had an incident until October. Her neighbors started a large fire next to her home, and as the fire approached her property, she was very worried.
“That’s when I called the fire department,” Cook said. “Even then they did it four more times and every time I called, sometimes the police.”
After that, the neighbors made things worse, Cook said. They carried guns around the house and talked about harming her and her husband.
“I’ve heard them talk about doing a driver’s license spin and coming here with their ropes,” Cook said. “That’s when my husband decided to put a camera there.”
After the cameras were brought in, things between the neighbors had reached the bottom. Cook woke up one morning to find a large picture of a Confederate flag with the words: “Check this out.” The photo was pointed right at the camera and it was the final straw for Cook.
“That kind of action not only affects me, it affects the entire city, the state, the whole world,” Cook said. “It made me realize that things don’t change as much as people like to think.”
Cook then took action, filing a police report.
Authorities charged her neighbor with making a terroristic threat. He has pleaded not guilty and will appear in court on Monday.
