Beer burglary suspect caught

Posted By on Mon, Jul 20, 2009 at 3:28 PM

The Little Rock police have arrested a 31-year-old suspect in a recent spate of convenience store burglaries, several in which stolen vehicles were used to smash doors to facilitate thefts of cigarettes, cigarillos and 30-packs of beer.


On 7-17-2009, Detectives were working Burglary Detail in reference to the recent outbreak of commercial burglaries where the businesses were either being broken into or the suspects were using stolen vehicles to drive through the business to gain entry.  All of the burglaries have the same M.O. and the same items are being taken (cartons/packages of cigarettes, cigarillos, 30 packs of beer).  A suspect was developed and identified as Philip Madison. 
Detectives received information that the Shell Station at 7300 South University had been burglarized and a maroon Dodge Durango was used to drive through the front doors of the business.  Detectives identified Philip Madison as the driver of the Durango (which was reported stolen out of North Little Rock). Madison drove through the doors and then entering the business returning with numerous 30 packs of beer placing them into the vehicle.
During this burglary detail, detectives assisted the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department in attempting to locate Madison or the Dodge Durango he used in the burglary.  While driving eastbound on Forbing Road, almost to Geyer Springs, a maroon Dodge Durango drove past detectives in the left lane of Forbing Road at an extremely high rate of speed.  It then drove through the red light at Geyer Springs and drove southbound on Geyer Springs.  The vehicle also ran the red lights at Young Road and at I-30.  A lengthy pursuit continued through North Little Rock and back to Little Rock.  The suspect exited onto Cantrell Road heading west bound and “ditched” the vehicle at the end of the exit ramp.  An unidentified individual who was on the phone with State Police advised Little Rock officers that the suspect ran across Cantrell Road heading south bound.  A foot pursuit ensued and Madison was subsequently taken into custody.  The Durango was confirmed stolen out of North Little Rock.  Madison was transported to the Detective Division where he was charged with five counts of Commercial Burglary, Theft of Property, Felony Criminal Mischief, Felony Fleeing, Aggravated Assault, two counts of Theft by Receiving, Reckless Driving, and five counts of Running a Red Light.  Madison showed to have an active felony warrant for Commercial Burglary out of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.
