TRAVIS ARMISTEAD was taken into custody and transported to the Sheriff’s Office. During interview by Investigator Brad Lewis, ARMISTEAD admitted to stealing the travel trailer because he did not have anywhere to live or stay. He has been incarcerated in the Detention Center on a charge of Theft of Property – Class C Felony, with a bond of $10,000. He will appear in Baxter County Circuit Court on November 21st to answer the charge.
