BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

A Batesville parolee is facing several more charges after fleeing police by jumping out a window.

According to the affidavit, Batesville Police were doing a roundup of parole absconders Friday.

Police located Dustin Adams at the Lawson Street Apartments, but when Adams saw the officers he took off.

Adams ended up diving head first out a closed window and then taking off on foot through a wooded area.

Police located a handgun with a loaded magazine and six rounds laying on the ground where Adams jumped out the window along with his ball cap.

Once Adams fled, a K9 unit started tracking him through the wooded area.

According to the report, the unit searched several barns and sheds before hearing a woman screaming and yelling.

Officers arrived at a home on East Main Street where they found Adams trying to kick out another window to escape.

Police were able to arrest Adams at that time. 

According to the woman found screaming, she had been walking back and forth from her neighbor’s house all day baking cookies.

She told police the one time she did not lock her door is when Adams came into the home.

The woman told police Adams locked the door when he came in so she unlocked it and that is when she heard Adams in the house.

The homeowner told police she kicked Adams in the groin and told him to leave.

Adams did not leave the house and offered the woman a folding knife and $20 to keep quiet while he hid in her home.

The woman told police she called her neighbor over to the house and when she knew the neighbor was close she ran out of the house and started screaming for help.

After police took Adams into custody, they called an ambulance because Adams has several wounds from jumping through the first window.

During a search of Adams and his property, police found a bag of meth on him as well as a digital scale and a smoking device in his backpack.

Adams is facing eight separate charges including aggravated residential burglary, possession of drugs and firearms, possession with the intent to deliver, fleeing and criminal mischief in the first degree.

Adams bond was set at $250,000 and he is being held in the Independence County Detention Center.
