  • Two Hot Spring County brothers face charges in two counties in connection with a string of residential burglaries. Derek, 21, and Dylan Holliman, 20, both of 1137 Neighbors Road, Donaldson, are charged with two counts each of residential burglary in Clark County. They have been in custody at the Clark County Detention Center since their Jan. 6 arrest. They also face burglary charges in Hot Spring County. Court documents indicate that confidential informants helped investigators solve the burglaries on Cedar Grove and Old Military roads. The case was opened Jan. 3, when a Cedar Grove Road resident reported someone forced the front door open and took several items from the residence. An XBox gaming system, two pairs of Nike tennis shoes and $100 cash were taken from the residence. At some point during the investigation, an informant contacted Patrolman Roy Bethell with the Caddo Valley Police Department in reference to "information involving recent burglaries in Clark County," according to the affidavit. According to Bethell, “numerous firearms" were stolen from the Old Military Road residence. Those firearms, he said, have yet to be recovered. Officials also learned during the investigation that Derek had been arrested for theft charges in Hot Spring County on Jan. 4. The affidavit states the Holliman brothers asked a Curtis woman for a ride and to drop them off at a Cedar Grove Road location, and that they instructed her to return “in a few minutes." When she returned to pick them up, Derek was reportedly in possession of a pair of Nike shoes that, according to the affidavit, matched the description of the ones reported stolen. Another person police interviewed said the Hollimans asked him for a ride to Old Military Road, and at some point observed that the Hollimans "had a box with them." The affidavit doesn't indicate what was in the box. Derek admitted the female gave he and his brother a ride on the night of the Cedar Grove Road burglary but denied knowledge of the incident, according to the affidavit. Asked about the burglary on Old Military Road, he "stated that he was there and had knowledge of the burglary," according to the affidavit. A $100,000 bond has been set for both men. Upon posting bond, they would be required to wear an electronic ankle monitor. If convicted, the Hollimans could face five to 20 years in prison for each count and up to $15,000 in fines on each count.
