A local man on parole from a burglary conviction last year was arrested Wednesday morning on a felony warrant involving a burglary allegedly committed in September.
Jemmerio Tyrell Brown, 22, who refused to give an address at the time of his arrest, was taken into custody shortly before 11 a.m. at the corner of Pleasant and Grove streets on a warrant for residential burglary, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Brown remained in custody Thursday on a zero bond and is set to appear on Dec. 19 in Garland County District Court.
According to court records, he was convicted on June 1, 2020, of two counts of breaking or entering and sentenced to five years' supervised probation; and on May 13, 2022, of residential burglary and sentenced to six years in prison. His probation from the 2020 conviction was also revoked at that time and he was sentenced to six years in prison, to run concurrently.
According to the probable cause affidavit, on Sept. 12, Hot Springs police responded to a residence on Maryland Street regarding a burglary. Officers spoke to the resident who stated he had returned home shortly after 2 p.m. and saw two Black males exiting his residence through a side window.
He reportedly recognized one of the men as someone he knew as "Mario." On Oct. 2, the man sent HSPD Detective Shawn Stone an email that contained a photo of a man the victim identified as "Jemmerio Brown," that was the one he said he had recognized that day.
Stone was able to confirm the person in the photo was Brown through photo comparisons and a computer check showed he was on parole at that time. A warrant for his arrest was subsequently issued.
