BC woman arrested, lies about identity

A Baxter County woman, 29-year-old Becky Sue Wallis of Big Flat, is being held in the Stone County Detention Center in Mountain View in connection with a burglary and theft.

Stone County Sheriff Lance Bonds says investigators from his department conducted a search warrant on Monday on Josephine's Road in Stone County in relation to a burglary and theft. The incident occurred earlier this month on Cedar Creek Road.

Sheriff Bonds says investigators located stolen property, narcotics and a wanted person during the search. The wanted person, Wallis, was being sought on an outstanding probation/parole warrant for absconding.

Bonds says when questioned by investigators, Wallis lied about her identity.

Wallis is awaiting formal charges from Sixteenth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Holly Meyer.

Another suspect is being sought in connection with the burglary.
