Dustin Blake Gaines--On the Run in Russellville

On Sunday night, the Pen-N-Sword reported breaking news of a truck theft in Russellville. The suspect in that crime had been linked to a string of home break-ins. Apparently the car thief was busy last weekend, and Russellville police have implicated him in three vehicle thefts that took place during the holiday period. He's been identified as Dustin Blake Gaines, 24, of Russellville.

From a press release: Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett said a warrant was issued Monday for Dustin Blake Gaines, 29, 188 Cemetery St., Russellville. “We had a rash of vehicle thefts over the weekend, where we had three cars taken,” Russellville police Sgt. Joe Hargett said. “Gaines has been developed as a suspect, and we need to question him.” Police said Gaines also has outstanding warrants for escape from a prior incident. Gaines is a described as a white man, 5 foot 11 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He has sandy-colored hair. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 256-332-2230 or Crime Stoppers at 256-386-8685

It seems Gaines is no stranger to law enforcement. The married father of two has served a lengthy stretch in prison. In 2003, Gaines was charged with a controlled substance crime. Theft and Receiving Stolen Goods charged followed in 2008 and 2009. He's recently been charged with assault and is currently out on bail for another controlled substance crime. He should be considered dangerous.
