Suspect Arrested: Vehicle Break-ins and Escape
Published: August 27, 2012



On Sunday, August 26, 2012 about 12:15 am, the Mountain Home Police Department received a complaint from an individual who observed a suspicious male entering a vehicle located in the area of Locust and Cardinal Streets. Officers responded to the area and observed a male subject “going through” a vehicle. The subject was taken into custody and identified as Dylan O Lawyer, 19 from Gassville, Arkansas. He was placed in a patrol vehicle. Officers then made contact with the property owner to obtain additional information. During this brief period, the suspect was able to escape from the patrol vehicle and flee. Officers were not able to immediately apprehend the suspect.

The suspect has been charged numerous times in the past, including charges for breaking into a local pharmacy located on Highway 201 North in Mountain Home. During this incident, Dylan Lawyer fled from responding officers and was later tased while resisting arrest after he was located in the yard of a local residence.

The suspect was recaptured around 5:00 am by a Baxter County Sheriff’s Deputy near Gassville. Lawyer was transported to the police department where he admitted that he had entered at least two unlocked vehicles on this date. It was further discovered that he was riding around on a bicycle that was stolen from the yard of a residence.

Lawyer was charged with the following:

Breaking or Entering, Class D Felony (2 counts)
Escape from Custody, Class D Felony
Theft of Property, Class A Misdemeanor (2 counts)
Fleeing, Class A Misdemeanor
Obstructing Governmental Operations, Class A Misdemeanor 

More charges are expected to be file as the investigation continues. He was incarcerated into the Baxter County Detention Facility without bond.
