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.”
