Hot Springs Police were contacted by Rent-A-Center in April about the theft of rented property.
Lindsey Joan Baehr, 37, of Quapaw Avenue in Hot Springs, is alleged to have rented items on November 2018 which are valued at $1,083.70. The last payment allegedly received was in March 2019. Rent-A-Center reports that several attempts to reach Ms. Baehr by phone have been unsuccessful as well as a certified letter that was allegedly sent to the Kaufman Road address she allegedly provided when filling out the rental agreement paperwork in April 2019. The letter was returned as undeliverable.
HSPD Detectives swore out a felony warrant for the arrest of Ms. Baehr and entered the wanted information into the police computer system.

Ms. Baehr was transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. She is charged with Felony Possession Of A Controlled Substance and Felony Theft Of Leased, Rented, Or Entrusted Property.
