The Washington County Sheriff's Office reports the arrest of three men in connection to burglaries in Washington, Holmes and Jackson counties with an additional suspect still at large.
In late September, Washington County Sheriff's Office investigators worked burglaries on Ledger Road and Gilberts Mill Road in which items including TVs, jewelry, electronics, gas powered yard tools and a 4 wheeler were taken. The subsequent investigation resulted in investigators locating several pieces of property at area pawnshops and secondhand dealer shops. These transactions resulted in suspects being identified by investigators.
WCSO investigators worked to piece together the suspects' involvement in residential burglaries in Holmes and Washington County, deals involving stolen property, incidents of shoplifting as well as identifying criminal associates involved as far away as central Florida.
Investigators were able to recover thousands of dollars in property in addition to the 4 wheeler and several pieces of equipment. The following suspects were responsible for a residential and retail theft in Holmes County, a motor vehicle theft in Central Florida, and two residential burglaries in Washington County.
The following individual is currently at large and is being actively sought at the time of this release:
