The Bay County Sheriff’s Office announced today the arrest of one individual tied to four vehicle burglaries in the Callaway area on October 14, 2017.

Shortly after midnight on October 14, the BCSO received a 911 call to report two suspicious people on bicycles in the neighborhood of Betty Louise Drive and Yellow Bluff Road. Several other 911 calls were then received reporting vehicle burglaries in the same neighborhood.
