Police searching for couple accused of trashing home | Crime
Bench warrants were issued Thursday for a couple accused of doing $300,000 in damages to a Jonesboro home.
Amie Eggers-Long, 27, and Phillip Long, 30, are wanted for Criminal Mischief-First Degree/$25,000 or more in damages.
According to investigators, the couple and their 8 children had been renting a home in the 1200-block of South Culberhouse. When they failed to pay rent, the owner ordered them to move out.
After receiving word they had vacated the premises, the homeowner, who lives in Oregon, asked her mother to check on the property. That’s when, according to the police incident report, the damage was discovered.
Officer Jo Carol Carter reported a “very strong odor of urine” when she first entered the house. She also said the floors were “nearly invisible due to the amount of junk on the floor.” She said fresh paint had been thrown on the floors and walls throughout the house.
Officer Carter said she found rotten food and “unknown substances” smeared on the walls, floor and counters of the kitchen.
She also found a “large amount of feces” in every room of the house. Officer Carter said the excrement “had been there for an extended period of time.”
Amie Eggers-Long is described as being five-feet-three, weighing 175 pounds. Phillip Long is described at six-feet-three, weighing 250 pounds. If you know where police can find them, call CrimeStoppers at 935-STOP or the Jonesboro Police Department at (870) 935-5553.
