BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – While away on vacation, a Mountain Home man catches two men on camera robbing his home.

On Dec. 27, police said the homeowner received an alert from his security system. Remote access to the security cameras allowed him to discover two men inside his residence located on Westridge Road.

The homeowner called the Baxter County Sheriff's Office. Officers reached the home around 5:14 a.m. and the suspects fled the scene.

The homeowner was able to supply the police with the video footage.  

On Friday, the suspects, Tyler Ray Bell, 28, and Jeffery Wayne Maller, 32, both of Mountain Home were located and taken into custody.

According to police, Bell and Maller admitted to breaking into the residence. The pair took a drill and once they noticed the security cameras, they quickly left.

Bell and Maller are in custody at the Baxter County Detention Center and have been charged with residential burglary and theft of property. 

Bond has been set at $15,000 for each. Both are scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 16.
