No sus­pects had been nar­rowed down as of Tues­day for the Satur­day, Sept. 13 break-ins at an el­e­men­tary school and recre­ation cen­ter.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the So­cial Cir­cle Pri­mary School after an alarm sounded Satur­day, ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port. Of­fi­cers found sev­eral win­dows had been bro­ken and a fire alarm had been sounded.

Noth­ing was stolen, but doors and glass panes were dam­aged, said So­cial Cir­cle Po­lice Chief Terry Sose­bee. Build­ing main­te­nance also re­sponded to the scene.

Around the same ap­prox­i­mate time, Sose­bee said, of­fi­cers re­sponded to the Walton County Recre­ation Cen­ter after re­ceiv­ing re­ports of van­dal­ism, bur­glary and tres­pass­ing. Sose­bee in­di­cated some­one or a group of peo­ple had tried to en­ter the cen­ter through mul­ti­ple doors and broke a key off in one. One of the build­ings was en­tered.

Per­son­nel at the cen­ter sub­mit­ted a list of miss­ing items, Sose­bee said. There was no dam­age to any fields. The So­cial Cir­cle Po­lice Depart­ment was fol­low­ing up with the school to find out of any new da­m­ages were re­vealed after the night of the in­ci­dent.

“It’s not con­firmed,” Sose­bee said, “but the sit­u­a­tion is in­ter­est­ing be­cause the in­ci­dents were around the same time and may be re­lated.”
