Tony Alamo case may come before Fort Smith grand jury

FORT SMITH – Another page in Tony Alamo‘s history with the River Valley could soon begin.

Alamo was arrested Friday while leaving an Arizona hotel, in suspicion of transporting minors across state lines for sexual activity. The evangelist who called Crawford County his home during the 1980s and 90s has waived extradition to Arkansas, and could be taken before a Fort Smith grand jury when he returns to the state.

Meanwhile, custody hearings are going on for the six girls taken into state custody after the raid on Alamo’s Fouke compound. A judge decided Friday that two girls will remain in foster care, and officials will be back in court Monday for another hearing involving the other four other girls taken in the raid.
