Lafayette County Sheriff Carson McCall said deputies have worked around the clock to solve the spat of burglaries and acts of vandalism that have occurred in Mayo recently.

K-9 Deputy Geoff Condy and Deputy Scott Hamlin followed leads in the burglaries and vandalism at Lafayette High School, Lafayette Elementary School, the concession booth at Lafayette Baseball Complex, and the concession booth at the Community Sports Complex on County Road 400 that led to four juveniles, ages 10-15.

At press time McCall said the juveniles have been questioned and charges are pending.

Sgt. John Young's investigation of the burglaries at Airline Baptist Church and Cornerstone Baptist Church that occurred after Sunday night services have also been solved.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the two suspects were interviewed by Young and will face charges in Lafayette County after charges are satisfied in Leon County. The two suspects, whose names have not been released by the Sheriff's Office, are being held in the Leon County Jail.

McCall said all the property taken from the two local churches was recovered.

"These officers have conducted outstanding, professional investigations that has resulted in speedy results in both of these cases," McCall said.
