A $15k bond was set for a White Hall woman accused of commercial burglary

A White Hall woman was arrested after she was identified as the second suspect in a burglary and theft at the Big Red Travel Plaza.

Hollie Wiley, 55, allegedly admitted being present when a former employee, Jason Buck, entered the office at the business and took $15,000 from the safe. Buck reportedly gave Wiley more than $3,000 as “hush money” which she gave to White Hall Police Investigator Sgt. Clayton Cantrell.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Deputy Prosecutor Beth Carson explained the allegations.

Carson said Wiley had prior felony convictions, mostly for theft related offenses in 2004 and 2005.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $15,000 bond for Wiley after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge her with commercial burglary, breaking or entering and theft of property. She was told to come back to court Jan. 30.
