Two arrested for burglary of Henrietta business, residence


Jonathan Eric Holman and Sara Elizabeth Skinner were arrested Tuesday for the burglary of a Henrietta business and a nearby residence last week.

Holman is believed to have broken into R&D Appliances and Resale Shop, at 201 S. Bridge St., and a home in the 600 block of South Clay Street. Skinner is believed to have driven Holman to the business and home, and to a Wichita Falls pawn shop to sell stolen items.

R&D Appliances and Resale Shop was burglarized sometime between 12:30 p.m. Saturday, June 16, and 7:45 a.m. Monday, June 18. The owner of the business, Debra Paul, told the Clay County Sheriff’s Office that three clothes dryers, a personal computer and a credit card machine had been removed from the building.

Plywood had been from a boarded-up window near the back of the building, allowing the burglar to gain access.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Skinner met with a deputy at the CCSO on Thursday, June 21. Skinner said that at 5 a.m. Monday, she drove Holman to R&D Appliance. Holman told Skinner he had to go in and get an air compressor. He returned with a circular saw, a nail gun and other tools.

They later went to the home on South Clay Street, where Skinner said Holman entered the house and came out with two computer monitors and a bag with keyboards and speakers.

Skinner said she went with Holman to his house in the 400 block of South Main Street, where Holman took the items into his house.

Skinner said she then drove Holman to EZ Pawn in Wichita Falls, where he tried to sell some items, then to a house on East Scott Street in Wichita Falls. Skinner said Holman took stolen items inside the house, and returned to the car without them.

On Friday, June 22, deputies met with the owner of the burglarized home, who said he had spoken with Holman’s wife. Holman and his wife had recently become separated. She told the victim that on June 19, she had went to her Holman’s house, where a black computer tower was hidden under his daughter’s bed. Deputies were able to confirm the story with Holman’s wife.

Sheriff Kenny Lemons said Holman and Skinner could face additional charges later today, and believes they are responsible for other recent burglaries.

Holman was arrested Monday afternoon. Skinner turned herself in Monday night.
