All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police Detective Jessup reports that a WalMart Boss reported a breaking and entering and theft of necklaces last month.

A jewelry display case had been broken into and 6 silver necklaces ($888.00) were missing.  The WM Boss reviewed the video surveillance footage and was able to find a person, known to him, breaking the lock on the case and remove the necklaces.  He concealed the necklaces in his jacket and immediately departed the store.

Damage to the display case was valued at $98.05.

Det. Jessup reviewed the footage and verified the suspect’s identity as Parolee Christian Alexander Bice, 27, of Belvedere Drive in Hot Springs.

Det. Jessup obtained an arrest warrant for Parolee Bice and entered it into the police computer.

Parolee Bice was at the courthouse for some reason on January 12, 2021, around 2PM.  While there, Officer Israel made contact with him and arrested him on the spot.
