WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) -

A Region 8 couple is locked up in a local jail, accused of breaking into several area storage units.

On Monday, April 13, Lawrence County sheriff's deputies arrested 32-year-old Kenneth Eric Bass and 33-year-old Jolene Marie Bass.

According to an email from Detective Andrew Turner, the sheriff's department received multiple reports of storage units in the area being burglarized and several items stolen.

An investigation led detectives to the couple and the recovery of a “large amount of stolen property,” he said.

The Basses are being held at the Lawrence County Detention Center charged with breaking or entering and theft of property.

Turner said further charges are expected as the investigation progresses.
