A 23-year-old Greenbrier man was charged with theft and drug charges after “two unauthorized male subjects” were found in a vacant residence Nov. 21, the sheriff’s office announced Thursday.
Joshua Sawrie faces 11 felonies and one misdemeanor after Faulkner County sheriff’s deputies found him at a vacant residence and in possession of a stolen Polaris Ranger, valued at $10,000, among several other stolen items, according to a probable cause affidavit.
According to a news release, the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office was “doing extra patrol” on Sawrie Road due to a number of theft reports in the area when it “located a white SUV parked at a vacant house” shortly before midnight.
“As the deputies were checking the property, they recovered the stolen Polaris Ranger” that was reported missing at 5:50 p.m., the release stated. “While on scene, deputies located two unauthorized male subjects in the vacant residence and additional stolen property.”
Sawrie is currently being held without bond in the county jail. He is set to appear in circuit court on Dec. 19.
The other “unauthorized” individual, 21-year-old Braden McMillen, was also arrested Nov. 21. It is unclear if he faces any charges at this point.
