     As the result of a joint investigation between the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office and the Mountain Home Police Department, two people have been arrested on multiple charges related to various incidents.

     On February 14, 2018, the Sheriff’s Office took a report of a burglary at the Worlow Land Company building in Henderson.  Entry was gained by using a hammer to beat the door knob off to allow entry into the building.  Items stolen included a crossbow, bolts and tips, hunting clothing, and knives valued collectively at approximately $1,200.  During the course of investigating this crime and other similar crimes in and around Mountain Home, two suspects were developed, being 25 year old BETHANY MARSHALL of Norfork and 26 year old CHRISTIAN B. SISK of Mountain Home.  Both suspects have subsequently been charged with Residential Burglary, Theft, and Criminal Mischief in connection with the Henderson burglary.

     In addition to that Sheriff’s Office case in Henderson, CHRISTIAN SISK was identified as the suspect in an attempted break-in at the Car-Mart on U. S. Hwy 62 East, just outside of Mountain Home.  The Sheriff’s Office responded to an alarm call there on February 16th.  Someone picked up a concrete block and threw it at the door in order to attempt to break-in.  The alarm activated, and the suspect left.  Video surveillance from the business assisted in identifying CHRISTIAN SISK as the offender.  He has been charged in that incident as well.

      In addition to charges from the Henderson burglary, BETHANY MARSHALL is facing charges related to another incident that was reported to the Sheriff’s Office on November 27, 2017.  On that date, BETHANY MARSHALL reported her vehicle, a 2011 Nissan Juke, to have been stolen.  On December 12, 2017, while conducting a follow-up investigation on a separate complaint, the 2011 Nissan Juke that BETHANY MARSHALL had reported stolen was found by Sheriff’s Investigators at an address on State Highway 5 South.  The vehicle was extensively damaged and had been partially disassembled. 

     When interviewing BETHANY MARSHALL on February 21st concerning the Henderson burglary, Sheriff’s Investigators questioned her again her having reported her vehicle being stolen back in November. MARSHALL subsequently admitted that the vehicle in question had not been stolen.  Rather she had conspired with two other people to dispose of the vehicle and file a false insurance claim.

     Aggregate charges from these three incidents are:

BETHANY MARSHALL, charged with:

Residential Burglary – Felony
Theft of Property (2 counts) – Felonies
Criminal Mischief in the First Degree – Misdemeanor
Forgery – Felony Filing a False Report – Felony

MARSHALL is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond and will appear before the Circuit Court to answer today, February 22nd.

CHRISTIAN B. SISK, charged with:

Residential Burglary – Felony
Commercial Burglary – Felony
Theft of Property – Felony
Criminal Mischief in the First Degree – Misdemeanor
Habitual Offender – Penalty
Enhancement Parole Violation – Felony

SISK has a bond of $25,000 on the new charges, but is being held without bond for the parole violation.  He also will appear today before the Circuit Court to answer.

     Both MARSHALL and SISK are expected to face additional charges in the county and city as investigations into various other cases continue.
