Employee’s banking practices leads to arrest

An employee of a Mountain Home establishment, 49-year-old Scott Allen Haynes, of Jonesboro has been arrested following a theft report from the business owner.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Haynes had been making night deposits for the business by taking the cash and writing personal checks for the funds from an account he knew to have no money. Haynes is alleged to have attempted four deposits in this manner totaling over $1,500.

Haynes was charged with second-degree forgery and theft of property, both felony offenses.

He was booked into the Baxter County Detention Center Wednesday morning, with bond set at $2,500. Haynes is scheduled to appear in Baxter County Circuit Court this month.
