JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A woman faces a felony theft charge after police say they found her and a companion asleep in a vehicle surrounded by stolen goods.

On Feb. 8, the manager of Lindsey Management Apartments, 1424 Links Dr., reported someone had entered their shop building and stolen several items.

According to court documents, the culprits took a pole saw, chainsaw, hedge trimmers, and multiple tools valued at $1,189.97.

"The camera from inside the building captured the suspect stealing the property from the building," the probable cause affidavit stated.

The following day, a Jonesboro police officer noticed a suspicious vehicle parked in the middle of a field.

When the officer looked inside, he "discovered two subjects asleep in the vehicle and noticed several tools."

Investigators noticed that all of the property inside the vehicle matched the property listed stolen by Lindsey Management.

"Neither suspect was able to explain how they came into possession of the stolen property," the affidavit stated.

Officers arrested 28-year-old Angie Lynn Hall and 35-year-old Christopher Adam Dougan, both of Jonesboro.

The officer "noticed that Dougan was "wearing the same clothing that the suspect in the burglary was wearing," the court documents said. "[He] also noticed that Mr. Dougan matched the same height and weight description of the suspect in the video."

On Tuesday, Hall appeared before Craighead County District Judge David Boling who found probable cause existed at the time of her arrest to charge her with theft by receiving $5,000 or less but greater than $1,000.

Hall is currently free on a $2,500 temporary bond awaiting arraignment in circuit court on March 30.

On Wednesday, Dougan appeared before District Judge Tommy Fowler who found probable cause to charge him with breaking or entering a building-building or structure; theft $5,000 or less but greater than $1,000 from a building; possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance less than four ounces, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Dougan remains in the Craighead County Detention Center on a $20,000 cash/surety bond.
