JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Poinsett County man is in trouble with the law after authorities uncovered surveillance video showing him and two other people unloading items taken from a residential burglary, authorities said.

Ryan Mccloud of Trumann was arrested on suspicion of two counts of residential burglary after the investigation.

“The three are shown on video dated Oct. 31, 2018 unloading items from Ryan Mccloud’s vehicle that were listed as stolen in a residential burglary on that same date in Craighead County,” the probable cause affidavit said.

Police were able to recover some of the items taken, the affidavit noted.

Authorities also investigated Mccloud in connection with a Nov. 13, 2018 residential burglary at a home on Craighead 333.

During that burglary, police say officers found a Social Security card at the scene and also found a vehicle had been broken into in the area.

“The subject’s wallet containing credit cards, Social Security card and other items were taken in the earlier theft,” police said in the affidavit, noting Mccloud and another suspect had been caught on video using a credit card from the theft at local businesses. “The same Social Security card taken in the wallet from this theft was found at the scene of the residential burglary later on this same date.”

A $10,000 bond was set for Mccloud, who will be arraigned Feb. 22 in court.
