Christopher Jarmin and Dustyn Dowdle arrested for Residential Burglary and Theft of Property


On October 16, 2014 the Howard County Sheriff’s Department received a call from Jim Hood at 1747 Mt. Pleasant Drive north of Nashville.  Mr. Hood stated that he was mowing at his son’s residence and noticed a dark colored Chevrolet truck come from behind the house at a fast rate of speed.  Deputy Timmy Floyd and Investigator John Eric Glidewell responded to the call.  When officers arrived they observed tire tracks where the vehicle had sped away and noticed several items that came from inside the residence sitting in the yard behind the house.  Deputy Floyd stayed at the residence taking the report while Investigator Glidewell attempted to locate the suspect vehicle.  Investigator Glidewell met a dark green Chevrolet truck traveling at a high rate of speed traveling north on Mt. Pleasant.  Investigator Glidewell radioed Deputy Floyd and advised him to have Mr. Hood look at the vehicle when it passed by the residence.  Mr. Hood advised officers that was the vehicle he had saw earlier coming from behind his son’s residence.  Investigator Glidewell stopped the vehicle and identified the driver as Christopher Jarmin w/m dob-10/8/1985 of 160 Ramage Road  Nashville, Ar. and the passenger as Dustyn Dowdle w/m dob-12/21/1988 of 2706 Hwy. 26 East in Delight, Ar.  Officers found several items in the back of the truck that had been stolen out of the Hood residence.  Both subjects were arrested and transported to the Howard County Jail and charged with Residential Burglary and Theft of Property.  Bond has been set at 50,000 dollars on each subject.
