Rebecca Rene Bryniarski
The Sheriff’s Office arrested a rural Mountain Home woman, 36 year old REBECCA RENE BRYNIARSKI, on December 1st in connection with a series of break-ins and thefts in Baxter County. The charges came about as a result of an investigation into break-ins at three separate locations.
On November 6th, the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a break-in and theft at a shop building at 174 Crawford Drive. One of the items stolen was a new 5000 lb winch with a cable breaking system. Suspects were later developed in this case. It was ultimately revealed through the LeadsOnline system that the winch in question had been pawned on November 8th by REBECCA BRYNIARSKI.
On November 15th, the Mountain Home Police Department (MHPD) took a report of a break-in and theft at a building used for storage at 2169 Hwy 62 West. Various items were stolen.
A third break-in and theft had earlier been reported to MHPD from 2471 Hwy 62 West. Items stolen from this location included an antique metal car and a Chinese checker board.
On December 1st, REBECCA BRYNIARSKI was interviewed by investigators, and she admitted her involvement to varying degrees in each of these break-ins. She was arrested and incarcerated in the Detention Center on charges of:
Breaking or Entering (2 counts) - Felonies
Theft of Property – Misdemeanor
Theft by Receiving - Misdemeanor
BRYNIARSKI was released from custody after posting $10,000 bond. She will appear in the Circuit Court to answer on December 8th.
Similar charges are expected to be filed later against a second suspect as well.
In addition to these cases, the investigation continues into the various break-ins of mini storage units and other buildings reported last week that resulted in the recovery of a large cache of stolen property and the arrest of DWAYNE ALLEN THOMPSON. Property remains to be claimed by its rightful owners. Anyone seeking to examine or lay claim to any of these stolen items can contact the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division to schedule an appointment to view them where they are currently stored.
