LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 man is behind bars accused of breaking into several homes in Lawrence County.

According to the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department, Andrew Ring is accused of breaking into several homes in the Black Rock and Portia areas.

Police say Ring was named as a person of interest, but when deputies tried to pull him over he fled from police. After chasing Ring down several back roads in Portia, Ring was able to lose police by driving through fields.

A few days later, police received a tip on Ring's whereabouts and again Ring ran from police. During the second chase, Ring rammed at Walnut Ridge Police car and was finally caught and arrested.

Ring told police he was strung out on pills when he broke into the houses, and also admitted to fleeing from police. Some of the property that was taken was also recovered from Ring.

Ring has been charged with residential burglary, theft of property, fleeing, and criminal trespass.
