Fall break gives students time to break the law

October 13, 2006

Thomas County-  Fall break for Thomas County and Thomasville School students has meant extra work for police after a spike in juvenile crime.  Sheriff's deputies responded to three juvenile robberies in the last week.

Teenagers cut holes in shirts and used them for masks to steal cigarettes.  At this home on Ring Oak Drive several students jumped a Papa John's driver. 

"A fast food delivery man was robbed by six juveniles, physically holding him down, taking his wallet and running off," said Inv. Tim Watkins, Thomas Co. Sheriff's Office. 

Police arrested all the burglary suspects and some of the six young people accused of robbing the pizza delivery person.  Police also recovered two guns, a chain saw, and an ATV stolen during one of the burglaries.
