                                 Four Arrested for Burglary



Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:


            Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports that on August 26th four individuals broke into the concession stand at the football stadium and in the old gym store at Valley Head High School. Approximately $250.00 in damage and items were taken. School Resource Officers Jim Chambers, Tim Rector and Investigators found Waylon Burton, 19 of Valley Head, Patrick Sinns, 18 of Valley Head and a 17 year old juvenile in possession of items that were taken from the concession stand and old gym store. Burton and Sinns were recognized by faculty as former students at the school. Burton and Sinns were arrested and charged with Burglary 3rd and Receiving Stolen Property. On August 27th investigators found a 16 year old female as the fourth person that was involved with the burglary. Both juveniles were charged with Burglary 3rd and Receiving Stolen Property but remain in their parents’ custody.

Sheriff Harris states “This is great work by our School Resource Officers from Valley Head and Moonlake. This is another reason why we need to keep officers in every school. To not only protect the students and teachers but to be there for cases like this.”
