On July 25, Deputy Ryan Stubenrauch of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department responded to a breaking or entering call at 21201 Hwy 107 in Jacksonville. Upon arrival, Stubenrauch made contact with Robert Mullen and Christopher McMunn.
McMunn told the officer that the property belonged to him and the residence had recently burned. “McMunn stated that since his residence burned, various unknown persons had been coming on his property, entering from Kenwood Road,” said Stubenrauch . “I then made contact with Robert Mullen. Mullen told me that he had been storing his trailer containing various tools, miniature race car, ATV, and racing gear on the property.”
Mullen said that sometime overnight, someone had broken the locks off the doors of his trailer and stolen his 2008 red Honda Recon 250 valued at $4,500, various tool boxes containing Craftsman hand tools valued at $1,500, orange and purple Danny Nelson Race Craft Chassis drag race car valued at $15,000.00, a black Simpson racing helmet valued at $200, and a maroon and silver Simpson racing helmet valued at $200.
“Mullen said someone had broken the locks on the trailer to gain entry,” Stubenrauch said.
Mullen did not have serial numbers or VIN’s for any of his property, but would obtain the numbers at a later time.
McMunn told officers someone had entered his unlocked storage shed on the property, but he did not notice anything missing.
“I gave both McMunn and Mullen the report number and advised to contact the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office for any further assistance,” Stubenrauch said.
Stubenrauch was able to recover one partial palm print from the trailer. The print will be stored in the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office property room to be forwarded to the Arkansas State Crime Lab.
Lt. Carl Minden, public information officer for the Sheriff’s Department, said officers are looking for the public’s help in locating the stolen mini race car.
“Please contact the PCSO at 340-6963 or to remain anonymous call the Central Arkansas Crime Stoppers tip-line at 340-TIPS (8477),” Minden said.
