Suspect charged with burglary in Crisp county

CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - Crisp County Deputies have charged 19-year-old Jessica Hope Ellis with burglary.

Deputies responded to a burglar alarm at Sheila's on Highway 300 Friday night at 11:30 p.m.

Deputies received information from the alarm company that the intruder may still be in the building.

They said the business owner also called after he saw Ellis from his surveillance system at home.

Captain Kimbrel and Lieutenant Busch arrived at the business and found the back door had been entered.

Worth County units assisted deputies as they entered the building and found Ellis inside.

The surveillance footage showed Ellis tried to open the business's cash register. 

Ellis is now in the Crisp County Detention Center.
