Police arrest man in alleged house burglary Sunday


A reported burglary in progress Sunday at a house in central Pine Bluff resulted in the arrest of one man who denied any involvement when he was questioned by police.

Lemmie Daniels, 20, told Detective Marcia Oliver he “didn’t know anything about the burglary,” Oliver said in a probable cause affidavit.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said a witness reported seeing three men throw bricks through the windows of a house in the 1300 block of West 12th Avenue, go inside the house and take flat-screen televisions and computers.

According to the affidavit from Oliver, the items were found behind another house nearby and were returned to the owner.

The other two men allegedly involved in the burglary escaped, and police are continuing their investigation into the incident.

Oliver said in the affidavit that when Daniels was questioned, he told police “he was alone.”

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $10,000 bond for Daniels after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Daniels.
