The report also adds that the suspect was found consuming pills in the rear of the patrol car after his arrest, adding a tampering with evidence charge to his plate.
Regarding this incident, Hill faces charges of possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, tampering with evidence, felonies for breaking and entering and theft of property/credit/debit cards, and a charge for no insurance.
The police report links at least 11 recent reports to the suspect, including this one. Several reports filed over the weekend indicated Hill had allegedly attempted to use stolen cards belonging to one of the victims.
As of this report, Hill is held at the Craighead County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
