(Mountain Home) – The Baxter County Sheriff Office currently has two persons being held in the Pemiscot county Sheriffs Office in Caruthersville Missouri for outstanding warrants for felony Theft of Property.
38-year-old Kenneth Grady of Hayti and Faith Babcock of Caruthersville were arrested early Tuesday morning July 30 by Missouri authorities and are currently awaiting extradition to Baxter County.
The Sheriffs Office issued the felony arrest warrants after an investigation of the theft of two person watercrafts and trailer were reported stolen on July 20 from Jordan Marina on Lake Norfork. The watercrafts and trailer were valued collectively at approximately $20,000. Evidence indicated that the suspect purchased fuel for the watercraft on or about July 6 and used a credit card owned by Babcock to pay for the fuel.
The two personal water craft and the trailer have been returned to the owner. Once Grady and Babcock are extradited, they will have a bond of $15,000 each on their charges.
