AUSTIN, AR - Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for breaking into 12 cars, including a police car, between 1am and 3am Thursday.
Investigators say four credit/debit cards were stolen and the suspect, 20-year-old Hayden Dougan, used these cards at a Cabot gas station, a lingerie store in Jacksonville and at the North Little Rock Walmart. They say Dougan tried to steal an AR 15 rifle from the police car but was unsuccessful.
Dougan was arrested during a traffic stop Thursday afternoon. Police say they found approximately 15 syringes, one "loaded" with Oxycontin, and several spoons with burnt residue in Dougan's vehicle.
Investigators say Dougan admitted to the break-ins and admitted to breaking into about 10 vehicles in the same area in June.
Dougan is being charged with six felony counts of breaking or entering, five felony counts of theft of property, felony possession of controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. More charges are pending.
