CABOT, AR – Austin Police have arrested a man accused of burglary, fleeing and resisting arrest.
According to reports, on September 14, Austin Police found a woman standing next to a green Ford Mustang parked in the driveway of 1255 E. Main Street, a home that had been recently constructed and was not occupied by residents. Police say the woman, later identified as 29-year-old Salina Parker of Cabot, told them her boyfriend went behind the house to find a tire.
Police say they found a rear window damaged, door open and fresh footprints leading away from the house. K9 officer “Lord” tracked the prints to another new construction home about two miles away. The suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Jonathan Allen Montgomery Presley of Cabot, was found hiding under the rear deck of the home.
When Presley refused to come out from under the house, officers say they attempted to pull the suspect up as he resisted. Officers say Presley was actively fighting and resisting arrest when he was bitten by a K9 officer.
Presley was taken into custody and transported to the Lonoke County Sheriff’s Detention Center where he is being held on $10,000 bond. Parker was cited for criminal trespassing.
Police say Presley is also a suspect in an additional theft of wire case from a home in Cabot.
