GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Four Region 8 men face burglary charges after a not-so-smooth getaway.

On Sept. 22, the landlord of a rental home located on Greene County Road 622, called dispatch after seeing someone attempt to break into the home.

The landlord told dispatch she ran after the suspects, but they left in a green truck.

While on the way to the scene, Deputies Kaleb Pitcher and Ken Womack spotted a green Chevrolet pickup truck on Greene County Road 628 with its hood up and two men standing near the truck.

The two men were identified as Kyle Nunley and Zachary Parker and after being questioned about their whereabouts.

After admitting to being at the home on Greene County Road 622, both Nunley and Parker were asked to submit voluntary statements.

After receiving permission from Nunley, the deputies searched the truck and found a loaded shotgun with a broken butt, a baseball bat, a motorcycle helmet, a 9-millimeter gun, and a machete, according to an incident report.

Deputies arrested both Parker and Nunley.

Nunley told deputies there were two other men, Justin Hand and Spencer Patty, who were with them at the time and gave deputies Hand's phone number.

The deputy told Hand he needed to speak with him and Patty about the incident.

After meeting with Hand and Patty at the Greene County Sheriff's Department, the incident report states Patty gave deputies consent to search his vehicle.

Deputies did not find anything in Patty's vehicle.

In his narrative, Deputy Mike Wess stated he found four 12-gauge shotgun shells along the sidewalk of the home as well as broken glass and a brown wallet with Patty's driver's license in it.

Hand and Nunley were charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. They were released and given court dates.
