A resident on Belding Street started her 2004 Ford Explorer to warm it up and went back into her house around 7AM Monday. She came back out a few minutes later to find her Ford (valued at $4,500) missing.
The victim got in another car and began the hunt for her stolen SUV. She found her car traveling on Malvern Avenue about an hour later. She followed the stolen vehicle to the end of Halton Terrace where she says the driver stopped and fled on foot carrying a bag full of items.
Hot Springs Police responded to Halton Terrace with a K-9 Team. The suspect was tracked to a residence on Ash Street and detained. The victim positively identified the suspect as the person she saw flee from the vehicle on Halton Terrace. The K-9 Team went back along the track to search from some items that were missing from the truck. The bag and several items belonging to the victim were located.
The suspect, identified as James Grundon, 43 of Hot Springs, was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center. Mr. Grundon was charged with Felony Theft By Receiving. His bond amount was set at $2,500.
