All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
Hot Springs Police Officer Crook reports that he and backup officers were dispatched to Leawood Street Thursday around 11AM in reference to someone attempting to break through the door of a residence.
Officers arrived quickly and were approached by the suspect walking in the road towards them. He was making jerky movements, speaking rapidly and his pupils were dilated. The officers repeatedly told him to keep his hands out of his pockets and speak calmly. He was unable to get himself together and even told officers that he was not able to do that.
After several commands he finally complied and was arrested. Officers tried to get him into a police car, but the suspect, Eddie Carol Lloyd, 38, of Leawood Street in Hot Springs, began to pull away, resist officers and refused to be placed into the vehicle. Mr. Lloyd eventually complied and was placed into the car.
Officers made contact with the victim. He said that He saw Mr. Lloyd looking through the window and didn’t pay much attention to it and went to the restroom. Then, he heard loud knocks on the door and a big crashing sound ($265 worth of damage, possibly to the door). The victim said he ran out the back of the house and called 911. The victim says that he saw Mr. Lloyd looking through the house yelling a woman’s name, who no longer lives in the area. Officers learned that Mr. Lloyd and this female split up about a month ago and she moved several states away.
The victim says that he watched Lloyd through the windows from the backyard until Mr. Lloyd exited the house and walked towards the neighbor’s house. That’s when officers arrived.
Mr. Lloyd was transported to the Garland County Detention Center and processed. He is charged with Felony Residential Burglary, Criminal Mischief, Resisting Arrest and Public Intoxication with a bond amount totaling $7,250.
