MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – Officers issue a reminder for citizens to lock their parked vehicles after they made several arrests last week involving multiple break-ins in Baxter County.

Mountain Home Police arrested 43-year-old Michael Bobbitt of Mountain Home on Wednesday. According to police, a witness saw the suspect in her car, parked on the lot at a local apartment complex.

Responding officers took Bobbitt into custody after a short foot pursuit. After the arrest, police recovered approximately 20-dollars in cash the suspect had stolen.

Bobbitt is currently being held at the Baxter County Detention Center with a bond set at $3,500. He is facing charges for breaking and entering, theft of property, fleeing, and refusal to submit to arrest.

In a separate incident on Thursday around one in the morning, a Mountain Home couple was arrested during a theft investigation.

Police say they noticed 28-year-old Nicole J. Young on North Church Street impaired by controlled substances in a stalled vehicle. Officers then say they discovered items inside Young's vehicle matching the description of items reported stolen earlier the same night.

Police then searched her residence and found her husband, 31-year-old Joseph D. Young along with additional stolen items.

After questioning by police, the couple admitted to driving around during the evening hours and stealing from multiple unlocked vehicles.

Items recovered ranged from shoes to a .223 assault rifle with magazines.

They are both being held in the Baxter County Detention Center. Both face charges for breaking and entering, multiple theft of property charges and possession of a firearm.

In addition. Nicole Young was charged with DWI drugs.

Both are held on a $10,000 bond.

Once again, Officers issue a reminder for citizens to lock their parked vehicles since unlocked vehicles are an easy prey for criminal activity.
