Man arrested after he's found camped out on someone's property | Crime
A Clarkridge resident who had been out of state for several months returned to find his mobile home damaged and a man camped out in his driveway.
Edward Allen Seace, 51, was arrested on charges of residential burglary, theft of property and criminal mischief.
Seace, who recently moved to Baxter County from New Hampshire, is accused of living out of his 1976 Dodge RV at a home on Deerwood Drive.
When the property owner returned he found Seace living in the RV. He also discovered that copper wiring and plumbing had been taken from a mobile home on his property, according to an email from Sheriff John Montgomery. The mobile home’s kitchen was also destroyed and all of the cabinets were missing.
Montgomery said deputies found a box of copper wiring and plumbing under Seace’s RV.
Seace told investigators his RV had broken down three weeks ago and he had left it on “abandoned” property.
Montgomery said Seace was “unable to provide convincing statements with respect to where the box of copper and plumbing pieces underneath his RV had come from.”
Investigators obtained a bench warrant and arrested Seace on Saturday, April 27.
Seace is currently being held at the Baxter County Detention Center in lieu of $25,000 bond awaiting an appearance in Circuit Court on May 9.
