I hope he got a lawyer and sues the police department and the city council and gets his job back.

The city council had no right or reason to fire Eric. He was doing his job getting the drugs out of pocola.

Pocola will be the Biggest Drug Town in Leflore County because Eric is no longer Chief of Police and that is just how I feel about the situation.

Yeah i do know Eric and his family, I am good friends with Eric and his wife Dana. I plan on voting for Eric because he would be the best candidate for the sheriff's position! The pocola city coucil don't know what they have lost, but Leflore County will know what they have gained a really awesome sheriff that will work harder then any sheriff that has ever been in there before.

Hey, I know Eric also. It was my brother he shut the business down for. Because of his crooked dealings. I would be ashamed to say he was a friend. He was my broothers best friend also. He didn't mind stabbing him in the back you might want to watch yours.

What the hell are you talking about?? The only business that Helms shut down was Adult world and if your brother was the owner of that, then I would be ashamed to tell anyone that he was my brother!! As for Helms being your "broothers"(lol) best friend. Hah!! Helms has one best friend and that is his wife!! I've know Helms and his family for years and I am very proud to call him and his wife my friends!! It's stupid, ignorant people like yourself, that always try to blame the cops for anything that goes wrong in their lives. You people need to start taking responsibility for your own actions instead of always blaming the police.
Mind you, Helms nor any officer can shut down a business without a court order!! So grow up!!

I think you spoke too soon. Eric Helms did not make it as sheriff of LeFlore County afterall.
You seem to know quite a lot about things in Pocola. I wonder if you could furnish some information for me.
I use to live in Pocola but moved away several months ago and I just came upon this site by accident.
Can you please fill me in on some things.
Who was the Mexican female that use to hang out at the Pocola Police Department all the time and what was her connection with Eric Helms?
This Mexican woman's "anchor baby" son went to work there as a dispatcher on the night shift. Is he still there or did he lose his job when Eric Helms got fired?
Also, I understand this Mexican "anchor baby" sued someone with the city of Pocola because the person made the comment that he did not like Mexicans. Do you know what happened about the lawsuit?
Also, there was some money missing from the Pocola Police Department. Did they ever find the money or find out who took it?
I would appreciate any information you can furnish.
Always good to keep up with what is happening in good ole Pocola town.

Eric Helms was a drugy his self.He stole from the police dept..The town of pocola has so much stuff on Helms that they could put him in prison for a long time..But the cops wont prosicute because cops take care of cops...Pocola is so much better now cause we got eric out of the police dept.

Pocola police dept. has enough stuff on Eric to put him away for a long time..The prosecuting attorney will not press charges cause they are friends.
