Another break in the Luttrell Elementary break-in

UNION COUNTY, Tenn.(WVLT)-- Two people turned themselves in tonight in connection to the Luttrell Elementary break-in.

Brittany M. Patton of Maynardville and Sheena Mills of Knoxville both turned themselves in around 8pm.

Both are charged with accessory after the fact and are being held on $15,000 bond.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Union Co. Sheriff's Office arrested two more people in connection with the break in at Luttrell Elementary School late last month - and a department spokesperson says they aren't done yet.

According to Sgt. Mike Butcher, authorities rounded up Jonathan Scott Sparks, of Corryton, late Wednesday night. The 21 year-old was charged with Burglary, Theft over $1,000, Vandalism over $500 and is being held on $50,000 bond.

Also charged last night was Tasha Marie Welch, of Luttrell. She faces an Accessory after the Fact charge and has a $15,000 bond. They are both due in court Friday morning at 9:00 a.m.

When announcing their arrests Butcher stated the department still has other people they expect will be charged in the case and they are actively looking for them.

Last week, two brothers were arrested for their role in the burglary, in which more than $10,000 worth of electronics was stolen from the elementary school. Rocky Breeden, Jr, 22, and Kristopher Nicholas Breeden, 20, are charged with Burglary, Theft, and Vandalism. Their bond was set at $75,000 each.

Authorities have recovered $3,000 worth of the items stolen so far. Original estimates said more than $10,000 worth of equipment was reported stolen.
