LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR - Two people are behind bars after being arrested on Christmas Eve for allegedly breaking into cars.
It happened around 10:30 in the parking lot of a business.
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) says Michael Harry Pickney, 47, of Black Rock and Billie Elaine Brady, 35, of Imboden are accused of breaking and entering and theft of property.
Their arrests came after a concerned citizen called about two suspicious people in the back parking area of the business.
When deputies arrived on the scene, they first made contact with Brady, who told them she was waiting on Pickney, who was found hiding behind a tree. Deputies say Pickney admitted that he and Brady were there to steal from vehicles.
Brady and Pickney were taken to the Lawrence County Jail to await a bond hearing. A background check on Pickney showed him to be on parole.
