On January 16, 2018, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office received a call for service at 2:15 pm in reference to a burglary at a home on Front Beach Road.

The resident of the home told deputies a white male on a blue bicycle entered his garage and then left with an item concealed under his black jacket. The victim described the suspect with some facial hair, wearing blue jeans, a gray pullover, a ball cap, and black tennis shoes. The incident was recorded by the victim’s home security camera. A photograph of the suspect and details of the incident were turned over to the BCSO Criminal Investigations Division.

By 3:45 pm the same day investigators identified the suspect as Casey Shuff, age 35, of 321 13th Street, Panama City Beach. Contact was made with the suspect’s girlfriend at their residence on 13th Street. She stated she had last seen Shuff fifteen minutes before investigators arrived.

A search warrant was obtained for Shuff’s residence. Investigators found a white male inside the home that provided a false name. He was later identified as Brian Morton. Morton was found to be in possession of Marijuana, Methamphetamine, and Drug Paraphernalia.

During the search warrant, another man arrived at the residence and entered the home without authorization. When investigators asked him for his name, he provided a false name and tried to flee the home. He was identified as Rickey Young, age 48, and was placed under arrest. A search of his person revealed he was in possession of Methamphetamine, Marijuana, Buprenorphine, Oxycodone, and Drug Paraphernalia.

After the search warrant, Shuff returned home and was placed under arrest. A confession was obtained from him. He stated the burglary he committed was simply a “crime of opportunity” and that he was just doing “the west end thing”. Shuff also revealed he committed several other burglaries in the local area.
