Sheriff Danny Hickman announced more charges would be filed in connection with the recent series of burglaries and vandalism in Bergman.
The Sheriff’s Department had been assisting the Bergman Police Department to solve the crimes. Two arrests were made last weekend, Justin Lathrop, 19 and Matthew Connolly, age 18, and investigators have continued to work leads from the case. Sheriff Hickmansaid two male juveniles, both 15 years of age, had been suspected early in the case but investigators wanted to gather more information and evidence before charging them. Hickman said affidavits will be filed next week and the pair will face charges in the Juvenile Division of Circuit Court for Burglary, Theft, and Criminal Mischief. “The case isn’t closed yet,” said Hickman. “We anticipate the arrest of another adult in this case and some accomplices.”
