SCSO arrests two men on burglary charge


Two Griffin men were arrested Tuesday in connection to an alleged theft at the former Dundee Mill near Sixth Street.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, Sgt. Chadwick and Cpl. Bowlden, of the SCSO Warrant Division, were on patrol in the vicinity of the former Dundee property near Sixth Street when they observed two subjects walking away from the property, pushing a wheel borrow containing what appeared to be metal.

The two subjects were identified as Timothy Barron and Tommy Bell, both of Griffin.

SCSO officials say upon further investigation, it was determined that the metal in the wheel barrow matched the metal located in the former mill property. The property is now owned by Herman Holdings.

Barron and Bell were arrested and each charged with burglary in the second degree and second degree criminal damage to property.

They are currently being held in the Spalding County Jail.
