Chipley Burglaries Cleared

A Jacksonville couple is on their way back to the Washington County Jail in Chipley on burglary and grand theft charges.

Washington County sheriff's investigators say 36-year-old Michael L Roberts and 30-year-old Alissia Leigh Pritchard are responsible for two residential burglaries that took place earlier this month in Chipley.

The first happened at a home on Cane Mill Road, where the owner reported the loss of $5,000 in jewelry and antique coins.

Prichard and Roberts are accused of stealing $12,000 worth of antique coins, jewelry and two guns from a home on Shore Line Drive.

Deputies say they've recovered the majority of the stolen property.
