Commercial burglary and theft suspect arrested
Published: July 1, 2014

Press Release

July 1, 2014

At 3:55 am on June 30th, the police department received a call concerning the sound of “glass breakage” at Hardee’s Restaurant. The caller initially provided police with a clothing description and a direction of travel as the suspect ran from the building. The suspect’s vehicle was located nearby.

Officers arrived and begin searching for the suspect. The suspect did not return to his vehicle and fled the area on foot. He was tracked through the adjoining neighborhood, including a nearby creek, and was located at 4:53 am several blocks away from the restaurant at his residence. The suspect, JOHN CONSOLE, 40 of Mountain Home, received a hand injury and was bleeding from breaking the glass. An ambulance was called to his residence.

JOHN CONSOLE was charged with commercial burglary, a class C felony and theft of property, a class B felony. He was incarcerated in the Baxter County Detention Center with bond set at $5,000.

Investigators served a search warrant at his residence on 6/30/14 searching for stolen money, but the money was not located. The investigation into the incident is still under investigation and so far more than $700 is reported stolen.
