Two additional arrests made in burglary


Two additional arrests have been made in a residential burglary reported Saturday in the 1700 block of West 27th Avenue in Pine Bluff.

Cawaske Jenkins Jr., 20, and another suspect who was not identified in court documents because he is a juvenile, were arrested Monday, according to an affidavit by Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Cassandra Briggs-McAfee.

Terry Reams Jr., 20, had previously been arrested on allegations of theft by receiving after allegedly telling police he did not participate in the burglary, but allowed the stolen items to be stored in his shed.

Police were dispatched at about 7 p.m. Saturday to the residence, where the homeowners said they had gone to the store and came home to find that their house had been broken into and several items were missing, according to the affidavit. Officers followed what appeared to be footprints from the victims’ backyard to a neighbor’s shed. The shed door was cracked open and the alleged stolen items were visible, according to the affidavit.

After further investigation, Jenkins and the juveniles were developed as suspects. Jenkins allegedly admitted his involvement.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled Wednesday that prosecutors have probable cause to charge Jenkins with residential burglary and set a $10,000 cash-only bond for him. Kearney appointed the public defender’s office to represent Jenkins.
