Early this morning, at approximately 1:49 am, police responded to a burglary alarm at MediSave Pharmacy located on Highway 201 North. Upon arrival, officers located a broken window used for drive-thru services.
Shortly after arrival, officers observed an individual fleeing the area on foot and began pursuing the suspect. Officers pursued the suspect toward and crossed Highway 5 North and he entered the back yard of a residence on Dyer Street. The suspect ignored multiple commands to stop. An Arkansas State Trooper assisted Mountain Home Police Officers.
At this point, officers utilized a Taser on the suspect causing him to fall to the ground. The suspect broke one of the two Taser leads and attempted to get back up. Officers deployed a Taser again in an attempt to subdue the suspect as he continued to resist arrest. Dylan O Lawyer, 20 of Gassville, was arrested and charged with Commercial Burglary, Fleeing, and Resisting Arrest. He was incarcerated in the Baxter County Detention Center on a $7,500 bond.
