Sheriff: GPS links suspect to crimes | Crime
Dillon Lawyer, 18, of Mountain Home might need an attorney.
On Thursday, April 26, Baxter County sheriff's deputies arrested Lawyer for stealing a 2008 Ford F-350 pickup truck belonging to the Missouri & Northern Arkansas Railroad.
The truck, valued at $25,000, was reportedly stolen from a home off State Highway 5.
