All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

On 2/21/2015, an unnamed victim reported a breaking or entering to a 2002 Ford F350, which was owned by his employer, Collins and Hermann Inc. The break-in occurred while it was parked in the 800 Block of Central Avenue.


The suspect broke the driver’s door window glass to gain entry to the vehicle and then proceeded to steal a Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol, two pairs of Oakley sunglasses and a tool box containing miscellaneous tools. The stolen property is valued at $800.00 and the damage to the vehicle’s door window glass is estimated to cost $250.00 to replace.


Hot Springs Police Officer Hammons allegedly saw blood on the exterior driver’s door and on a piece of paper inside of the vehicle’s center console. A swab of the blood found on the exterior of the driver’s door and the bloodstained piece of paper, from the center console of the vehicle, were collected and submitted to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for analysis.
