Two theft cases in Izard County were recently solved and warrants have been issued for the accused.

Sheriff Tate Lawrence said, Donald Wayne Walker, 54, of Hickory Ridge, has been charged with five felony counts relating to thefts from two locations.

In August 2007, the Izard County Sheriff's Department received a theft report of a Kawasaki all-terrain vehicle, shotgun, trailer and a deer target. The theft occurred at a vacation home on Jumbo Road.

In August 2008, a theft off Boswell Road was reported involving two Kawasaki all-terrain vehicles, chain saw, air compressor and a double barrel shot gun. The victim reported that the theft happened at his non-primary residence.

Through evidence collected in the two robberies, the chief investigator working with the Cross County Sheriff's Department developed a suspect and a warrant was issued for Walker.

The charges include three counts of breaking and entering, a class D felony, and two counts of theft of property, a class B felony. Lawrence said Walker was arrested and is being held on a $25,000 bond. Other residents of Cross County are facing charges of theft by receiving.
