Burglary Charges Filed Against Two Local Residents

Two Putnam County residents were arrested this week on charges of theft and aggravated burglary after the sheriff's department investigated a break-in at a home on Water Plant Road. Authorities say 18-year-old Samantha Marie Willis and 26-year-old Russell Wade Norrod are accused of taking more than five thousand dollars worth of merchandise out of a home last Thursday and later pawning that merchandise at two different pawn shops in the area. They'll be in court on the charges on August 16th.
