Trenton Burglary Bust
A North Central Florida Police Chief is calling it a two man crime spree and he hopes it's all over.
Trenton Police have arrested two people for one burglary and are calling them persons of interest in almost two dozen others over the last two and a half months.
A pair of burglars broke into Trenton High School twice over the weekend.
But this time, they were caught on tape.
And now police hope to solve most or all of the 19 burglaries that even included breaking into a Charity Food Pantry twice.
It's a break in the case that is a long time coming for Trenton Police Chief Billy Smith... arresting 34- year old Randy King and 16- year old Glenn Cunigan for the burglary of Trenton High School.
Smith calls them persons of interest in the other burglaries in the area.
After lots of police work, the big break came from this hidden surveillance camera... installed recently after there were break- ins in past years.
Some in black and white infrared... other video in color, showing two people breaking into the band director's office, among other places.
In a search of the trailer, police did not find much.
But they did discover a power source, and on closer inspection, a label on the handle that reads "t-H-S Band" that has been scratched out with black marker.
Smith has evidence and fingerprints collected from other break-ins.
Chief Smith says the pair denied any involvement until they found out he had their pictures on film.
Randy King is in the Gilchrist County Jail and will go before a judge this week.
Glenn Cunigan will see a Department Of Juvenile Justice Judge this week.
