Foreclosed but not forgotten

Posted By on Sat, Aug 14, 2010 at 6:59 AM

The Baxter County sheriff's office tells the tale of a local couple who apparently decided to take it with them after their house was foreclosed by a bank. They are charged with stripping fixtures and doing damage totalling $50,000.

BAXTER SHERIFF NEWS RELEASE

A second person has been arrested for Criminal Mischief and Theft of property after he turned himself into the Baxter County Detention Center at approximately 10 pm, Friday night. Rodney D. Cain and his wife, Cathy, were both charged after an investigation by the Baxter County Sheriff's Office. The investigation follows a complaint filed on April 9th by the First National Bank and Trust Company of Mountain Home.

Sheriff's Deputy Aaron Brown took a report of extensive damage and theft of fixtures from a home located at 8118 Highway 5 North that had been returned to First National Bank following a foreclosure order issued by the Circuit Court.

Following the foreclosure sale, the bank representative returned to the property in question. The house was found to be stripped of all fixtures, including sink faucets, handles, doorknobs, deadbolts, floor moldings, chandeliers, cabinets, center-island and marble, appliances, all interior doors, and the back deck. Most of the carpet had been pulled up, and the front desk was partially dismantled as well. Estimated damages from theft and destroyed property was approximately $50,000.

Sheriff's Investigators developed sufficient evidence to file charges against the previous homeowners, Rodney and Cathy Cain. Warrants of arrest were obtained for two persons.

Rodney D. Cain, 45 years old of Midway, was charged by warrant with:

Criminal Mischief - 1st Degree - Class C Felony
Theft of Property - Class B Felony

Rodney Cain was released from custody after posting bond in the amount of $25,000. He will appear in Baxter County Circuit Court on August 19th to answer the charges.

His wife, Cathy Jo Cain, was arrested and charged August 7, after she turned herself into authorities. She was released after posting a $25,000 bond. She is also scheduled to appear in the Baxter County Circuit Court on August 19th.

Mr. and Mrs Cain contacted authorities after being posted on the Baxter County Sheriff's Most Wanted Website. Cathy Cain turned herself in that evening. Her husband, Rodney Cain, was allowed by authorities to turn himself in at a later date due to the fact he was traveling with his child out of State on business.

The investigation is continuing.

Sheriff John Montgomery,
