Two Baxter County residents have been arrested and charged with felony crimes following an investigation into the break-in of a mini storage unit.
On the evening of Friday, June 1st, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at 92 CR 676, which is South of Mountain Home. During the investigation into the disturbance, deputies developed evidence to believe that stolen property from a mini-storage break-in in the Gassville area that had occurred earlier in the day, but was not yet reported, was stored inside the residence. A witness gave deputies a descriptive list of those items.
Deputies went to a mini-storage complex near Gassville that met the description of the location given by the witness. This was the Best-Way Mini Storage. Deputies found a mini-storage unit missing a lock that they suspected of having been broken into. The owner of the mini-storage complex was contacted, and he provided a name and number for the person who had that particular unit rented. Deputies contacted this person by phone, and she confirmed that there had been a lock on her unit. She also described property stored in the unit, and her description matched that of the property allegedly stored inside the residence at 92 CR 676. These items included DVDs, child safety seats, Halloween decorations, a tool box, and a gasoline powered RC car. These items were collectively valued at approximately $1,140.00.
On Monday, June 4th, Sheriff’s Investigators served a search warrant at 92 CR 676. During the search, Investigators recovered articles of property stolen from the mini-storage unit.
JEFFREY LYNN GRIGG, 25 years old of Norfork and VERONICA FRANCES GALE, 32 years old of rural Mountain Home, were arrested Monday afternoon and taken to the Detention Center. Both were booked in on charges of:
Breaking or Entering – Felony
Theft of Property – Felony
GRIGG and GALE were both released from custody after posting bond in the amount of $15,000.00 each. They are scheduled to appear in Circuit Court on June 21st. A third suspect is being sought, and an additional arrest is anticipated.
