Jesse Glenn Zurcher

     The Sheriff’s Office has arrested a 19 year old Yellville man in connection with the theft of a handgun, ammunition, and some prescription pills from a residence on Baxter CR 139 that was reported on November 18th.

     The victim told deputies that a work crew was at his residence to install flooring.  The victim noticed that one of the workers was acting suspiciously, including making several trips to the bathroom where the prescription medications were kept and adjacent to the bedroom where the handgun and ammunition were kept. 

     After the work crew left, the victim discovered the firearm, a Glock Model 22 .40 caliber handgun, to be missing from the bedroom and the prescriptions missing from the bathroom. 

     The victim contacted the owner of the business, who questioned members of the work crew.  Afterwards, the stolen handgun was turned over to the Sheriff’s Office, however the prescription medication and ammunition have not been recovered.

     The suspect, JESSE GLENN ZURCHER, was brought to the Sheriff’s Office to be interviewed about the thefts, after which he was booked into the Detention Center this morning on charges of:

Possession of Controlled Substance – Felony
Possession of Controlled Substance – Misdemeanor
Theft of Property – Felony
Theft of Property – Misdemeanor

     JESSE GLENN ZURCHER is being held in lieu of $20,000 bond, and he is scheduled to appear before the Baxter County Circuit Court on December 4th to answer the charges.
