     The Sheriff’s Office has arrested a rural Mountain Home man, 26 year old TYLER LAWRENCE ACKROYD, on burglary and theft charges following an investigation into a reported stolen vehicle. 

     On Saturday, June 29th at approximately 5:37 PM, Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Kocka was dispatched to 85 Keenan Ln to take a stolen vehicle report.  The victim stated she returned home from work around 5:00 PM and placed her car keys on the counter.  Approximately 30 minutes later she discovered the car keys were missing and her car was gone.  The vehicle in question was a brown 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis valued at $1,200.

     Deputy Kocka began searching the area for the vehicle.  While doing so, he was advised by the dispatcher that the victim had called again and said the vehicle had been returned at approximately 6:24 PM.  Deputy Kocka returned to the address to again speak with the victim.  The victim named TYLER ACKROYD as the suspect in the vehicle theft and gave a description of the clothing he was wearing.  The victim knew ACKROYD.  As ACKROYD was walking away from the residence, he told the victim someone said he could borrow the car.  The victim denied that any such permission had ever been given. 

     TYLER ACKROYD was last seen to be running away toward the Midway Oaks Trailer Park.    Deputy Kocka went to the trailer park and spoke with the manager, who pointed out a couple of abandoned trailers where ACKROYD might be hiding.  ACKROYD was spotted going inside one of the trailers.  Deputy Kocka entered the trailer and found ACKROYD inside.  Deputy Kocka told ACKROYD he was under arrest and attempted to take him into custody.  ACKROYD resisted the arrest, but was subdued and taken into custody anyway.  Drug paraphernalia was found in his possession.

     TYLER LAWRENCE ACKROYD was taken to the Baxter County Detention Center and booked on charges of:

Residential Burglary – Felony
Theft of Property – Felony
Resisting Arrest – Misdemeanor
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Misdemeanor
Probation Violation – Felony

     He has a bond of $25,000 on the new charges but a no bond hold on the probation violation.  He will appear before the Baxter County Circuit Court to answer on July 11th.  ACKROYD has been booked into the Baxter County Detention Center a total of nine times since 2011.
