A Mountain Home man has been arrested for the alleged theft of over $12,000 worth of makeup from the Merle Norman Studio in Mountain Home. Fifty-three-year-old Calvin Larry Summers is facing two felony charges in the case.

The Mountain Home Police probable cause affidavit indicates law enforcement was notified of the theft April 1. It was determined over $12,000 worth of makeup had been stolen from the store just off the square. Video surveillance from a nearby business showed an individual preparing to break into the business.

On Saturday, Mountain Home Police officers responded to a welfare check call and while at the location, they saw an unusually large amount of Merle Norman cosmetics. An investigator was called to the scene and recognized an individual at the residence, identified as Summers, as the person who was seen in the video.

While being questioned by police, Summers admitted to the theft. He is charged with felony counts of commercial burglary and theft of property and is free after posting $20,000 bond.
