Bond had not been set on these charges.

According to investigators, a witness observed Griffin at a residence where the copper wiring was removed and the owner reported the burglary and theft on Sept. 10. He was arrested Saturday, Jan. 12 on warrants.

A Marion resident, Lance Bracknell, 29, was arrested over the weekend for cruelty to a juvenile. A warrant was sworn out for his arrest Jan. 7 after he was accused of hitting his 2-year-old stepdaughter with a closed fist. His bond was set at $7,500.

Deputies reported finding two different strengths of Zoloft pills on Nation's person, some of his and others belonging to his mother.

Nation was charged with damaging a door inside the residence and taking his stepfather's vehicle without permission.

Larry Watley, 62, of 901-A Square Drive, Farmerville, was arrested Saturday for disturbing the peace by intoxication, but was also booked for public intimidation after cursing and threatening the arresting deputy. His total bond was set at $5,500.
