Two suspects were taken into custody by Saline County Sheriff’s Office deputies Wednesday following a BOLO from Benton Police Department for two suspects spotted in a porch pirating incident in Hurricane Lake Estates.

Kaylyn Jenkins, 20, of Mabelvale, and Danielle Babcock, 23, also of Mabelvale, were spotted in the neighborhood by a witness who found the two females dumping empty delivery boxes just after 10:30 a.m. The two fled after being spotted, but Saline County deputies caught up with them a short time later at North Sardis Road and took them into custody without incident.

Both suspects were transported to the Saline County Jail and charged with 18 counts of Theft of Property- Class D Felony- and one count of Unauthorized Use of Another Person’s Property to Facilitate a Crime- a Class B Felony.

BNPD officers collected the empty boxes and stolen items to make contact with the victims and return the items to their rightful owners. The investigation remains ongoing, and detectives ask anyone with additional information to reach out by calling 501-776-5947. They also request anyone missing packages in the Hurricane Lake Estates area reach out to the same number, as contact has not been made with all victims at this point in time. BNPD thanks Saline County deputies for their assistance in apprehending the offenders in this incident.

Criminal Investigations Divisions Captain Eric Haworth offered this advice for preventing porch pirates this holiday season and beyond:

“If you can’t be home for a delivery, arrange for a trusted friend or neighbor to hold your packages for you or have the packages shipped to the post office or other holding facility when the option is available,” he said. “You can also request a signature with many companies. Delivery services have gotten very precise with their notifications, but all of these tips will go a long way in preventing your packages from being stolen.”
