Grand Theft

By  | 

Two out of town visitors are spending their time at the Bay County Jail this weekend after allegedly burglarizing a Panama City Beach gas station.

Eighteen-year-old Gerald Beaver was arrested Saturday along with 34-year-old Julie Berkley, both from Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Bay County sheriff's investigators say Beaver armed himself with a gun and used burglary tools to get into the Chevron convenience store on Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach Friday.

Reports say he stole more than $300 worth of merchandise, cash and lottery tickets.

Beaver is being held at the jail on $71,500 bond. Berkley was charged with accessory to armed burglary and grand theft. She is being held on $50,000 bond.

Both are wanted fugitives out of Kentucky for similar burglary charges in that state.
