JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A third man has been charged in a string of vehicle break-ins that have plagued Jonesboro in the last few weeks.

On Wednesday, District Court Judge Keith Blackman found probable cause to charge Andrew Kelly Shipman, 20, with one count of vehicular breaking and entering.

Detectives identified Shipman as a suspect while investigating a series of vehicle break-ins in the past few weeks, court documents stated.

According to the affidavit, Shipman admitted he drove the suspects to a “couple of neighborhoods and dropped them off” then waited for them.

He reportedly told detectives the other suspects came back to the truck with backpacks containing stolen items.

Shipman said he did not ask any questions about the items, the affidavit stated.

Shipman was released on his own recognizance with an order to appear in Craighead County Circuit Court on September 26.

In a related case, Blackman found probable cause on Tuesday to charge 18-year-old Lane Fears and 20-year-old John Allan Faughn, both of Jonesboro, with 30 counts of breaking and entering vehicles.

Court documents indicate Faughn and Fears stole $16,010 worth of items, including 6 firearms, from vehicles in northeast and southwest Jonesboro.

Judge Blackman set their bond at $25,000 each and ordered them to appear in Circuit Court on September 26.

According to the Craighead County Sheriff's Office, Faughn posted bond and was released Tuesday evening.  Fears remains in the Craighead County Detention Center.

If convicted, all three men could face up to 6 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count.
