Yellville man accused of breaking into vehicles in MH

A Yellville man is accused of breaking into multiple vehicles in Mountain Home. Twenty-three-year-old Kevin Gerts was booked into the Baxter County Detention Center Sunday evening.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a Mountain Home officer was notified Sunday by a witness of a male attempting to break in to a vehicle at a local business. Officers responded and observed a male crossing Bomber Boulevard and running behind houses.

After a short pursuit, the suspect was taken into custody. He was identified as Gerts, and a witness said he was the individual suspected of breaking into the vehicles. Officers located stolen property from the vehicles behind the business. On Tuesday, Gerts reportedly admitted to breaking into the vehicles.

Gerts is charged with four felony counts of breaking or entering, three felony counts of theft of property and a misdemeanor count of fleeing. His bond is set at $10,000.
