Press Release – 10/26/2010
Sheriff Danny Hickman reports that the Boone County criminal investigation division arrested Michael Lee Yount W/M DOB: 09/14/1957 on 10/21/2010. The arrest was based on an investigation involving stolen property from a residence in Boone County. The case led the investigation team consisting of officers from Newton County Sheriffs Department, Harrison Police Department, 14th Judicial Drug Task Force and the Arkansas State Police to the execution of three search warrants over the last week leading to the recovery of stolen property and drugs.
Arrested along with Yount was Calvin Larry Summers W/M DOB: 04/02/1967 that lists an address in the Lead Hill area, Kristofer Wallace Stacher W/M DOB: 10/25/1979 from N. Cherry St. in Harrison and one male juvenile from Harrison.
Yount who was currently on parole for theft related offenses is being held without bond as a result of the new charges of commercial and residential burglary, breaking or entering and three counts of felony theft of property. Summers who was in custody on a $30,000.00 bond for drug related offenses out of Newton County has been charged in Boone County for residential burglary, breaking or entering and two counts of felony theft with an additional bond set at $25,000.00. Stacher is being held on a $15,000.00 bond for the offense of commercial burglary and felony theft of property. The unidentified juvenile that was arrested was found to be in possession of marijuana and stolen property.
At this time investigators with Boone and Newton County have identified owners of the stolen property that has been recovered. However, it is believed that there are more victims that have not yet been identified or matched to the recovered stolen property with reported cases. As the investigation continues the Sheriffs Department will make contact with victims that have filed reports in an attempt to identify the remaining items.
