Police here anticipate an arrest of two juveniles in connection with the theft of some $4,500 in personal electronics from the visiting team locker room at the Prescott-Spring Hill football game, Sept. 13.
Prescott Assistant Police Chief Joey Beavers said Friday that two juveniles, one from Prescott and one from Camden, have been identified as suspects in connection with the theft.
Beavers said he anticipates completing the investigative file soon and turning it over to Eighth Judicial District-North Juvenile Intake Officer David “Bubba” Powers.
“I have recovered a little more of the property, about $1,000 worth,” Beavers said. “I will be making contact with the parents of the players in Spring Hill so they can get their property back.”
He said the thefts occurred shortly after the Spring Hill football team left the locker room at the end of halftime.
“The team had already taken the field for the third quarter,” Beavers said.
He said the suspects allegedly used a piece of metal to remove a crossbar lock on the dressing room door.
“They just worked their way through the lock,” Beavers said.
He said the charges to be filed will be determined by Powers' office in conjunction with Eighth Judicial District-North Prosecuting Attorney Christi McQueen.
Taken in the theft were personal electronics including cell phones, ipods and headphones.
Spring Hill Schools Superintendent Angie Raney said Friday the PPD has been diligent in its investigation.
“They have spent a lot of time finding out who it is,” Raney said. “I spoke to coach Carter and he had spoken to the students and turned it all over to the police. We have done everything we can do and have cooperated with the Prescott Police Department.”
