Walton County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) began investigating a series of commercial burglaries last week in the Freeport area.
The Dollar Days Store, the Law Office of Stephen Willis and the Cypress Cattle Company were all reported as broken into on the morning of December 6, 2012.
Deputies and investigators worked diligently on these cases and gathered evidence in the course of the investigation leading to the arrest of Samuel Scott Newman, 33, of Freeport.
The investigation resulted in the recovery of stolen items to include an undisclosed amount of currency, a laptop, 2 guns, and over $1100 worth of chicken and beef.
Newman was arrested and charged with four counts of Grand Theft of a Firearm, two counts of Grand Theft (more than $300-less than $5000), three counts of Burglary, and two counts of Criminal Mischief (more than $200-less than $1000).
