Baxter County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a man after he attempted to break into another man’s home.

The incident occurred Tuesday in the 300-block of Bayview Drive in Mountain Home.

According to a press release from the sheriff’s department, the homeowner told police he heard someone attempt to break into his garage around noon.

A deputy at the scene found Brandon Shane Comstock, 31, of Mountain Home in the storage room, armed with a knife strapped to his belt, holding items that belonged to the homeowner.

Comstock dropped the items and ran into the woods.

Deputies later obtained a search warrant for a home on Bayside Terrace after a neighbor said he saw Comstock at the home.

Deputies found Comstock and he reportedly admitted to breaking into the storage area and attempting to break into the garage.

Comstock was charged with felony residential burglary charge and is being held on a $25,000 bond at the Baxter County Jail.

He’s expected in court May 12.
