JONESBORO, Ark. – A Jonesboro business is grappling with the aftermath of multiple devastating commercial burglaries, theft, and vandalism that resulted in substantial losses.

The incidents occurred between June 22 and June 29 in the 5900-block of East Johnson Avenue, where unknown suspect(s) forcefully broke into the premises of Chastain Construction and wreaked havoc. The victim, 78, told responding officers she and her husband’s business had been broken into twice in a week.

The business suffered significant property damage, including the destruction of multiple windows, totaling an estimated cost of $500. Additionally, a glass door pane worth $100 was shattered, and various dishes were broken and scattered throughout the building, amounting to approximately $200 in damages. The perpetrators also vandalized a large gray outside wall lamp, valued at $300, as well as a mirror worth $100. Moreover, a door with a glass oval inside sustained damage, resulting in a loss of $200. The floors and walls of the business were spray-painted, incurring an estimated cost of $500. Distressingly, an oil painting valued at $1,000 was irreparably defaced with spray paint. The incident also involved the shattering of a large glass cabinet, valued at $500, among other losses.

In addition to the property damage, the perpetrators made off with several stolen items. These included a five-gallon air compressor, miscellaneous antiques, and other valuable items. The victims weren’t certain at the time of the report of everything that had been taken.

The business now faces the arduous task of recovering from the financial losses and repairing the extensive property damage.

The morning after the report was filed, the case was placed on inactive status by detectives due to a lack of leads or suspect information, according to the report.

The individuals responsible for this incident could potentially be charged with several felonies, including commercial burglary, theft amounting to more than $1,000 but less than $5,000, and first-degree criminal mischief involving damages exceeding $1,000.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are strongly urged to contact JPD.
