Police arrest second suspect in November burglary

A second suspect was arrested Sunday after an investigation into a residential burglary that occurred in November.

Nicolas Rogers, 20, was identified from a photo lineup by the alleged victim, who also told police she recognized both Rogers and the other suspect because she had seen them in the neighborhood, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing for Rogers on Tuesday.

Detective Jerry Lambert said in a probable-cause affidavit that the burglary was reported Nov. 9 in the 1300 block of Georgia Street. The alleged victim told officers she pulled into her driveway and saw Rogers and another black male running through her back yard and carrying several items.

Kizer said the alleged victim told police the men dropped some of the items in her back yard and in the yard of a neighbor.

According to the affidavit, entry to the house was gained by kicking open the back door.

At Kizer’s request, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $10,000 bond for Rogers after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary.

Rogers said he would hire his own attorney.

According to the affidavit, Lambert interviewed the second suspect, Jarius Wayman, at the jail, and Wayman denied any involvement in the incident.
