Harrisburg police investigating several break-ins

HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) -

Police in Harrisburg are dealing with a number of break-ins around town.

According to Harrisburg Police Chief Gary Hefner, most of the break-ins occurred last week.

Hefner said 2 were residential and 2 involved cars. 

Hefner said the cars were unlocked.

Joey McGill, 19, was arrested in connection to these break-ins and is in the Poinsett County Detention Center.

Poinsett County Sheriff Larry Mills confirmed his department also worked a break-in outside of the Harrisburg city limits involving a car window being broken.

Mills said McGill is believed to be involved in that break-in as well. 

Mayor of Harrisburg Randy Mills went to Facebook to warn the citizens to keep an eye out. 

"Do not let your guard down," the Facebook post read. "Be vigilant. Do not leave valuables in your vehicle. Lock all your doors, vehicle and home. If you have storm or security doors on your home, lock them also." 

Hefner said they are still investigating and other arrests could be made.

According to the police chief, McGill appeared in court on Monday and a bond of $100,000 was set.

A pretrial date for McGill is set for Sept. 25 in circuit court in Poinsett County. He will be arraigned on 29 separate offenses, Hefner stated.
