The Panama City Police Department announces the arrest of a local resident on five counts of Burglary.
David Lee Atkinson was located and arrested after this agency received a confirmation hit on DNA samples that were sent to FDLE for analysis. The matches linked Atkinson to five separate Burglaries that occurred over the last several months.
Three of the Burglaries occurred at business offices and two were at a church. In each of the Burglaries there was money, food, or other miscellaneous items taken. This investigation is ongoing and further charges are expected.
Anyone with information about these or similar incidents is requested to contact the Panama City Police Department at 872-3112 or Crime Stoppers at 785-8477.
