JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-- Bench warrants were issued Thursday for a couple accused of doing $300,000 damage to a Jonesboro home.

Amie Eggers-Long, 27, and Phillip Long, 30, are wanted for Criminal Mischief-First Degree/$25,000 or more in damages.

According to investigators, the couple and their 8 children had been renting a home in the 1200-block of South Culberhouse.  When they failed to pay rent, the owner ordered them to move out.

After receiving word they had vacated the premises, the homeowner, who lives in Oregon, asked her mother to check on the property.  That's when, according to the police incident report, the damage was discovered.
