Two Pine Bluff men were arrested Tuesday after they allegedly tried to break into a house on the west side of town.
Nichols Grisby, 18, and Herve Turner, 19, reportedly went into the carport of a house in the 1900 block of West 15th Avenue and police found a door at the house had been kicked, Detective Bill Wiegand said in a probable cause affidavit.
Wiegand reported that a neighbor saw two men get out of a white vehicle and walk to the carport of the house.
The vehicle reportedly left and returned a short time later and Wiegand said the two men got back into the vehicle and left.
A description of the vehicle was broadcast and police located it at a house on the west side, the affidavit said.
A female, who was not identified, said she had dropped Grisby and Turner off at the house while she went to the store and picked them up when she returned.
Wiegand reported that when Grisby and Turner were interviewed, they both denied trying to kick the door of the house.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled prosecutors had probable cause to charge Grisby and Turner with criminal attempt residential burglary.
Kearney set a $10,000 bond for each man, appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent them, and told them to come back to court Dec. 19.
