Arkansas man charged with burglary, theft
Thefts from Seligman home related to Terri Jones, Cody Lowe case
An Arkansas man has been transferred to the Barry County jail and is facing charges of burglary and theft in relation to numerous items stolen from a home on Highway DD in Seligman.
Duel Walker, 50, of Gravette, Ark., was originally arrested by Benton County, Ark., deputies in early November, where Barry County deputies interviewed him in relation to the stolen property after serving a search warrant at his home on Nov. 9, one of two search warrants turning up allegedly-stolen property.
After posting his bond in Benton County, Ark., Walker was transferred to the Barry County jail on Dec. 11, where he is being held on a $10,000 bond.
According to a probable cause statement filed by Det. Doug Henry, with the Barry County Sheriff's Office, Leta Cole filed a burglary and stealing report on Nov. 4, stating a 1998 Honda Accord, a black jet ski trailer and two jet ski wave runners, along with several agricultural items and home interior items, were stolen from her property on Highway DD.
Cole said her neighbor in late October had confronted two men allegedly leaving the property in a truck with a trailer hauling the stolen property. Henry said he spoke with the neighbor and the neighbor's son, showing them a picture of Walker, who they confirmed was allegedly driving the truck. The neighbors also recorded the license plate of the vehicle, which checked back to the Gravette, Ark., address.
On Nov. 9, Henry served one of two search warrants at Walker's home in Arkansas, allegedly locating several items belonging to Cole, along with mail bearing Cole's name.
While being held in the Benton County, Ark., jail, deputies interviewed Walker, who said he was shown the Highway DD home, which was empty at the time, by Terri Jones, 43, of Seligman. Jones, along with 25-year-old Cody Lowe, of Seligman, were arrested in early November after deputies allegedly found the two in possession of Cole's Honda Accord, as well as multiple allegedly-stolen items from other cases, including items belonging to Army Spec. Christopher Stark, a Monett man who was killed in action in COP Tangi, Afghanistan in February 2011.
Walker has been arraigned, and his disposition hearing is scheduled for Dec. 29 at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
