Commercial Burglary Arrests
In the early morning hours of Monday, December 11, 2017, Carroll County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) deputies responded to an intrusion alarm at the convenience store in Oak Grove, Arkansas. The deputies were aware of recent commercial burglaries in Berryville, Eureka Springs, and in Carroll County outside these cities. Upon arrival, deputies found the front window smashed, and the cash register missing from the store.
Deputies located Adam Bailey walking in the vicinity of the store, wearing socks but no shoes. They observed broken glass fragments on his shirt. Deputies located a truck at a nearby residence that they believed used in the burglary. The truck also contained broken glass fragments, as well as shoes that appeared to match footprints at the store.
Deputies arrested Adam Bailey and later Tom Paul Morris at the residence where the truck was located. Both subjects were transported to the Carroll County Sheriff's Office. CCSO investigators contacted investigators with the Berryville Police Department and the Eureka Springs Police Department. Investigators with all three agencies interviewed Bailey and Morris at the CCSO.
