Sheriff's Office Arrests Juvenile in Multiple Burglary Cases

On May 24, 2020, at approximately 1:03 PM, our Communications Center received a call from a church located in the 5800 block of Boone Road. They reported a burglary occurred during the early morning hours when the church was closed. The doors were pried open and computers, modems, and other technology related equipment were stolen.

On May 24, 2020, at approximately 10:25 PM, we received another call from the same church. Again, the doors were pried open and computer equipment was stolen. The deputies suggested they install security cameras.

On May 26, 2020, at approximately 5:29 AM, we received another call from the same church. They reported another burglary but this time they installed security cameras and were able to capture footage of the occurrence.  

On May 26, 2020, at approximately 3:06 PM, we received a call reporting a burglary that just occurred in the 6300 block of Night Train Lane (this location is approximately a half mile from the church). The caller reported computer equipment stolen and found their computer in a ditch near the home. They also reported precious irreplaceable items were damaged and scattered in their yard.  In the same week there were reports of burglaries that occurred at other homes located on the same street.

The footage was reviewed and one of our school resource officers recognized the juvenile suspect. 
The suspect was tracked down and charged with the following:
First Degree Burglary (4 counts),
Felony Theft, and 
Felony Criminal Mischief.

The above cases were taken by numerous deputies and the internal communication between deputies were vital in solving these crimes. We would like to thank the community members for providing pertinent information which helped solve these crimes.
