Putnam pair arrested in Northview, GHS incidents

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

BRAZIL -- Two Putnam County young men are facing charges for an alleged break-in at Northview High School in Brazil as well as a possible incident at Greencastle High School.

Emmanuel Sanders, 22, Cloverdale, and a 17-year-old Putnam County juvenile were arrested Tuesday morning on the grounds of Northview High School.

According to a Clay County Sheriff's Department press release, officials received the report of a burglar alarm at the school just prior to 4:30 a.m.

Upon arrival at the school, deputies discovered a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot.

Deputies were met by a Northview official and determined the alarm was coming from the concession stand, which is located between the school's football and baseball fields on the north side of the facility.

As the school official was explaining to deputies which alarm had been activated, they spotted a male in a blue shirt near the concession stand.

Deputies entered the fenced area surrounding the playing fields and apprehended two male suspects without incident.

Checking the concession stand area, deputies found the entry door had been forced open. They also noted fresh pry marks on the doorframe.

Authorities also noticed the glass doors on two coolers inside the concession stand had been shattered and discovered the letters "GHS" sprayed inside the concession stand using Reddi-Whip whipped cream.

Deputies also linked the two suspects to the suspicious vehicle they had observed in the parking lot. As they prepared to have the vehicle towed, deputies discovered property that appeared to belong to Greencastle High School inside.

Greencastle City Police were called, and in contacting GHS they reportedly learned that two buildings on the school property also had been burglarized.

Sanders and his alleged juvenile accomplice were arrested on preliminary charges of burglary (a Class C felony), possession of stolen property (a Class D felony), criminal trespass on school property (a Class D felony) and criminal mischief (a Class A misdemeanor).

Sanders was being held in the Clay County Justice Center on a $10,000, cash-only bond.

The 17-year-old suspect was transferred Tuesday to a juvenile detention facility pending his initial hearing.

The two could face additional charges in Putnam County. No other information was available from Greencastle police or school officials on Tuesday.
