     Two wanted forgery suspects who were posted earlier this week on the Sheriff’s Office website were arrested this morning after they were spotted by a citizen at the Mountain Home Walmart Store.

     The investigation involving these suspects was initiated on June 10th when the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of the theft and subsequent use of a debit card.  The victim reported he believed he had lost his debit card at the Cranfield swim beach on Lake Norfork.  He subsequently discovered that the card had been used five times after he noticed it was missing. 

     Investigators found that the card was used three times at the Harps Supermarket located at 924 Hwy 62 East in Mountain Home.  Video stills from the store security camera system were obtained that gave clear visuals of a male and a female suspect.  The card was also used two times at one of the Casey’s Stores.   Images of the suspect were posted on the “Most Wanted” page of the Sheriff’s Office website with assistance from the public being sought to help identify the suspects. 

     The names of the two suspects were developed after Investigators received information and tips from various local sources, including from loss prevention personnel at another local retailer.  It was also learned that the pair had been tent camping at the Robinson Point campground but had not returned back to the camp site for some time. 

     This morning the Sheriff’s Office received a call from a citizen who was at the Mountain Home Walmart reporting that the suspects were both in the store and were both wearing the same clothing as depicted in the video stills that had been posted on the website.

     Deputies responded to Walmart and were able to locate and apprehend both suspects.  They were subsequently transported to the Criminal Investigation Division to be questioned and then to the Detention Center for booking.

     LUCAS M. HUBBARD, 35 years old with no permanent address provided, was booked on charges of:

Forgery (5 counts) – Felonies
Theft of Property – Felony

     HUBBARD remains in custody in lieu of $20,000 bond and will appear before the Circuit Court to answer on June 27th.

     JAMIE LEANNE KELLOGG, 33 years old of Shreveport, Louisiana, was booked on charges of:

Forgery (5 counts) – Felonies
Theft of Property – Felony

     KELLOGG has a bond of $20,000 on these charges with the same court date as HUBBARD, and she is also being held on an outstanding felony drug warrant from Shreveport, Louisiana that she will be extradited on.

    The Sheriff’s Office would like to express its thanks and appreciation to the public for helping to identify and apprehend these suspects.  Working together in a cooperative effort often produces positive results such as this.

Baxter County Sheriff
