Man on probation arrested in residential burglary


A Pine Bluff man who on probation in drug court was arrested Sunday after a burglary was reported at a house on the east side of the city.

Anthony Reagan, 25, was found hiding in bushes in the area, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing for Reagan on Wednesday.

Detective Jerry Lambert said in a probable-cause affidavit that the burglary was reported in the 2100 block of Port Road at 3:14 a.m., and police were told that a black male suspect was seen fleeing from the house.

Kizer said that when Reagan was located, he was carrying jewelry that the owner of the house identified as belonging to her.

According to the probable-cause affidavit, the point of entry was a window that police found open.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $50,000 bond for Reagan after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary and theft of property.

Kizer asked for the high bond after saying that police consider Reagan a suspect in several other burglaries.

Reagan said he would hire his own attorney and was told to come back to court Aug. 17.
