“We’ve been working this hard since last Monday,” Green said. “We were able to determine a minor was involved and we were able to bring charges against him and wrap this up Monday (Jan. 3). The minor has been charged as an adult in this case.”

Green said he wanted to thank the people in the community for help and information during the investigation. He also said he wanted to thank Brundidge Mayor Isabell Boyd for allowing the department to work overtime on the case. He also wanted to thank the Pike County Sheriff’s Office for its assistance during the investigation.
