One person was arrested and another is being sought in the burglary of a Cricket Road residence.

According to information from the sheriff’s office, at about 1 p.m., July 25, a report was made of a residential burglary on Cricket Road at Cabot.

Deputies learned that the homeowner had come home and found a car, with a female inside, in his driveway. The female, later identified as Catrina Blankenship, 30, of Conway, had said she was lost and asked for directions to Vilonia.

Upon entering his home, the homeowner found his firearms, televisions and other property by the front door.

A description of the suspect vehicle was issued, after which Deputy David Dillon saw the vehicle on Ballard Road and made a traffic stop.

Lt. James Kulesa and Investigator Carla Lucas responded to assist. The female was identified as Blankenship. The preliminary investigation determined that Eugene Travis Hall, 32, with whom Blankenship was in a relationship, had entered the Cricket Road residence though a window, but had fled the area when the homeowner returned.

Tracking dogs from the Arkansas Department of Corrections, Tucker Unit, searched a nearby wooded area but did not find Hall.

However was seen entering a green vehicle, possibly a Saturn, and then leaving the area.

Blankenship was arrested for the offenses of residential burglary, seven counts of theft of property, obstructing governmental operations, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hall remains at large, and is described as a white male, six feet tall, 160 pounds, red hair, blue eyes. Hall is believed to be in the Little Rock area.
