JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Baxter County Sheriff’s Department arrested a parolee last week on several charges in connection with a number of break-ins on Baxter County Road 27.

The sheriff’s office received a report on March 11 that several buildings were broken into in the 1600-block of County Road 27.

Investigators found that doors had been forced open and windows had been broken on the buildings.

Several pieces of property were missing from those buildings. That property includes a Mitsubishi flat screen television, scale mode stagecoaches, four antique rifles, various tools and a Generac generator.

A liquor bottle was also found inside one of the houses.

During the investigation, a witness told deputies that 37-year-old Jason Allen Hicks was seen carrying a large, flat screen television into his home on Sweet Fern Lane in Midway.

According to the news release from the sheriff’s department, there were other indicators that also pointed to Hicks as the suspect.

Sheriff’s investigators and officers from the Arkansas Department of Community Corrections went to Hick’s house on the morning of March 11.

When officers arrived on scene, Hicks fled from the officers. After a short search, he was found hiding in a storage unit at a nearby storage rental complex and was arrested.

Investigators found a Generac generator on Hick’s property that matched the serial number of the stolen one.

The stolen tools were later found inside a cooler behind another house near the victim’s property. The other stolen property has not been recovered yet.

Hicks was already on parole with a prior arrest history for residential burglary.

He is now charged with five felonies for breaking and entering, five felonies for theft of property and felonies for residential burglary, criminal mischief and parole violation.

He is being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond and the new charges and without bond on the parole violation.

He will appear in circuit court later this month.

    When a judge set his bond at $100,000 a man suspected of aggravated residential burglary had just one thing to say to the judge: “Good bond.” But, the judge wasn’t finished. And neither was the suspect.
