Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Two Carroll County men have been

arrested on theft charges after a string of

commercial burglaries in Berryville and

Eureka Springs.

According to a press release from the

Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, 21-yearold

Adam Bailey of Eureka Springs and

30-year-old Tom Morris

of Oak Grove were

booked into the Carroll

County Detention Center

on charges of theft by

receiving, three counts

of commercial burglary,

three counts of theft of

property, tampering with

physical evidence and

arson. Both were also

charged on an existing warrant.

The release says deputies responded to

an intrusion alarm at a convenience store

in Oak Grove on Dec. 11, finding the front

window smashed and the cash register

missing from the store. Deputies located

Bailey walking in the vicinity of the store

wearing socks but no shoes, the release

says, and observed glass fragments on his

shirt. Deputies found a truck at a nearby

residence, the release says, that they

believed to be used in the burglary. The

truck contained broken glass fragments

and shoes matching

footprints at the store,

the release says. Deputies

arrested Bailey

and later Morris at the

residence where the

truck was located, according

to the release,

and both subjects were

transported to the Carroll

County Sheriff’s

Office where they were interviewed by

investigators from CCSO, the Berryville

Police Department and the Eureka Springs

Police Department.

Bailey and Morris are being held at the

Carroll County Detention Center. Bond

has been set at $100,000 each.
