Two juvenile runaways from the Paul Anderson Youth Home were captured and arrested for theft on December 29.

According to the police report, at approximately 5:25 a.m., Vidalia police officers were dispatched to the Enmarket gas station, located at 1401 East First Street, in reference to a burglary that had already occurred. When reviewing the store’s surveillance footage, officers witnessed two males entering the front of the business by force before stealing various amounts of tobacco products and fleeing. During an area canvass by officers, it was discovered that the same males entered into the Clarion Pointe hotel, located at 1509 East First Street, and stole various amounts of alcoholic beverages from the hotel’s market.

During the preliminary investigation, which utilizes the assistance of citizens and Facebook followers, investigators were able to identify the males as Camden Line, 17, of Dahlonega, and Anthony Anderson, 17, of Suwannee. Both boys had been reported as runaways from the Paul Anderson Youth Home the prior day.

Line and Anderson were later arrested at Walmart at around 9:54 a.m., after police received an anonymous tip about their whereabouts. Line is being charged with Burglary and Theft by Taking (Misdemeanor), while Anderson is being charged with Burglary, Theft by Taking (Misdemeanor), and Obstruction of an Officer.
