Three charged with damaging Blue Ridge EMC building

By Staff
YOUNG HARRIS - Three men have been arrested and charged with breaking into a vacant building owned by Blue Ridge EMC late last week and doing as much as $3,000 worth of damage.

The Towns County Sheriff's Office said incident happened on Wednesday, April 23 when the utility called deputies to report the damage to the building in Young Harris. Investigators said a number of solid interior doors, bathrooms stall panels and desk tops had been removed from their proper locations and were being used for skateboard ramps. Investigators also discovered plastic bags containing suspected marijuana residue and empty alcoholic beverage containers.

The three suspects were tracked the next night when Towns County Dispatch notified the Sheriff's Office that a call had come in in reference to what appeared to be three teenagers possibly trespassing and skateboarding in a warehouse in Young Harris.

Deputies were able to make a traffic stop on a red Jeep Cherokee at approximately 11:30 p.m. The three subjects in the car were interviewed, and authorities said they admitted to the damage at the Blue Ridge EMC building.

Kylus Robert Hart, 22, of Lafayette, Daniel Allen Willis, 22, of Acworth and Ray Paul Lambert, 22, of Young Harris, were arrested and charged with Criminal Trespass. All three have posted bond.
