Burglary Ring

Authorities say they have broken-up a burglary ring in the Wiregrass area. Some of the suspects are as young as 13-years-old.

Jerry Butler's Auto Repair business located along Highway 331 in Downtown Paxton, Florida was broken into last week.

The robbers kicked-in the front door, as well as a door to Butler's office.

They stole a 1992 Lexus Sedan, which later turned-up in Panama City.

Walton County Sheriff's deputies arrested several juveniles. They are now charged with multiple counts of grand theft auto and burglary.

Butler was amazed to learn how young the suspects are.

Investigators say the arrests led to solving four auto thefts and six burglaries in Walton and Covington Counties.

The suspects are in the custody of juvenile authorities.
