     A Mountain Home couple, 55 year old MICHELLE LYNN WICKSER and 54 year old ROGER FREDERICK WICKSER, were arrested this afternoon by Sheriff’s Investigators on felony charges following the investigation into a complaint made on October 29, 2014 by the owners of the Bull Shoals Lake Resort in Lakeview.

      According to the resort owners, who are the victims, they had been out of town for several days.  Upon returning home to their resort, they discovered two people living in one of their resort cabins.  The victims did not know this couple, nor did they authorize them to be there.  According to the victims, this couple had been living in the cabin for three days.  The cabin was damaged, and wax had been poured down the kitchen sink.  The amount of rent and damage was estimated to be $1,000.  The victims were given three (3) different credit cards by the couple, each of which were declined. 

     The couple left, and a report was made to the Sheriff’s Office. 

     MICHELLE WICKSER and ROGER WICKSER were arrested by bench warrant and have each been charged with:

Commercial Burglary – Felony
Criminal Mischief in the First Degree – Misdemeanor.

     They were both booked into the Baxter County Detention Center this afternoon and were released from custody after posting $5,000 bond each.  They are scheduled to appear before the Circuit Court on December 4th.
