PCSO Investigating Possible Armed Men Breaking into Cars

PULASKI COUNTY, Ark.-- A Pulaski County grandfather says he caught on surveillance video three men with what appear to be two guns breaking into his family's cars.

Mike Jones says he hopes someone will recognize them and turn the suspects into the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.

He says it happened near Highway 300 and Roland Heights Road early Friday, June 9, 2017. 

Jones summed up how he felt by saying after living in the neighborhood for more than 30 years Friday night was the first time he ever felt he needed to double check every car door was locked.

He says, "when we seen the guns that changes everything."

Jones says this is more than just someone broke into his cars.

While holding his 10-month-old granddaughter he says,"this is why it scares me."

Jones installed home surveillance cameras and recently upgraded them. He showed us his home surveillance video from early Friday morning.

His camera caught three people going through his family's cars in their driveway on Roland Heights Road.

Jones says, "it was 4:19 Friday morning."

He says the only things missing are a debit card, some papers, and phone chargers.

"There was copper in the back of my car and my wife's key to her car," Jones says they didn't touch those things.

He says what really makes him mad is not even what they took.

Jones pointed at what appears to be a gun in the surveillance video, "it's scary. (It's) Scary to know they were in my driveway."

But something else made him even more furious.

He says, "knowing that my granddaughter was 15 feet away from where they had those guns. Ya, it bothered me."

He says the three people were on his property for less than 2 minutes.

"In and out in a minute and 50 seconds," he says.

He says he thinks they left after one of them spotted the surveillance camera.

Jones says, "because when your eyes hit in infrared they glow just like a cat's eyes."

He sat on his couch Saturday and said he asks, "but if you had come outside what would have happened?"

He says he thinks he knows his answer.

"I have a gun. Don't want to use it but would," the grandfather says.

Jones filed a report with the Pulaski County Sheriff Office. PCSO said on Saturday they are investigating the case.
