A $10,000 bond was set Thursday for a Pine Bluff man accused of breaking into a vehicle on Sunday.


Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Eric Smith, 18, with breaking or entering.

Reading from a probable cause affidavit from Detective Tamina Smith, Deputy Prosecutor Beth Carson said a female victim who owned the vehicle contacted police about the break-in and reported that a camera was pointed at the vehicle and recorded two unknown males breaking into it.


Carson said Smith has an open case of theft by receiving in North Little Rock. He was told to come back to court Jan. 21 and said he would hire his own attorney.
