Arrests have been made by the Logan County Sheriff’s Department in a break-in that occurred during summer break at Chandlers School.

Around the middle of June, the school was broken into and over $20,000 worth of computer equipment was stolen.

According to a police report, after receiving a tip about the stolen items last week on Oct. 7, deputies with the sheriff’s department went to a residence on C. Dodson Road in Logan County and were given consent to search the home by the owner.

At that time, deputies found several of the items that were stolen from Chandlers School. The items were found in two rooms of the basement as well as in the garage.

Two juveniles, one 17-year-old and one 15-year-old, involved in the theft were found at the residence and taken into custody.

Both juveniles were cited and then released back into the custody of their legal guardians.

A third individual, 20-year-old Phillip Crawford of Bowling Green, was arrested on Monday, Oct. 12 and lodged in the Logan County Detention Center in connection with the break in after several items were recovered from his residence in Bowling Green.

Nearly all of the property belonging to the school has been recovered at this time with only a couple of item being unrecoverable. According to those involved, those items were thrown into Briggs Lake following the theft.
